Question about 1985 Volkswagen agon
Is this the sign off the corrosion problem, and will I have to repair both cylinder heads.I have a 1990 caravel. This is the second time this has happened, the first time was messy.The leak this time is slight.
Are you using a Phosphate free antifreeze. This should NOT happen if you are. Phosphates in regular antifreeze eat and pit the aluminum that the heads are made of. Have you ever seen an old piece of aluminum that's all powdery and pitted and nasty ? phosphates in regular antifreeze do it even worse. sounds like you will have to replace the leaking heads. Then make sure you never use regular antifreeze in your bus. Dexcool is a good one to use but there are lots of other brands now that so many autos have aluminum heads. also if your going to replace heads I would get performance heads. little bit more money but way WAY worth it. More power is much needed in any bus. :)
