Question about 2008 Volkswagen Gli
I have a VW golf 3 TDI (MK3) gasoline Engine. It had an accident, damaged radiator and Aircon radiotor. Replaced engine cooling system radiator only, with a brand new aluminium radiator. Now, the problem is that the engine cooling system builds up so much pressure in the engine cooling system that I have to add about two litres of coolant every morning and just for a distance of about 10 km, the coolant indicator on dash bord blinkers prompting low levels of coolant. No leakeges have been traced to date for 30 days now, and no water/coolant in oil or oil in coolant. The engine operating temperature is normal and it has never shown any form of overhearting. What could be the ****?
Found hints on VolkswagenTalk.com suggesting to check inside engine oil cap. If you find foam (some call it ice-cream) Cylinder head gasket is blown. Went checked, and actually found ice-cream on it. Credit to Hillbill, Man you Rock!
I am now doing pressure test, but no wapping has been detected..problem was just in its early stages. on my way to get a metal gasket, and replace. Cheerz!
