Following on from my first thread: Possible Head Gasket / Cracked Head Problem?
I have had the coolant system filled with coolant now for 14 days. In those 14 days I have lost NO coolant whatsoever. Not a drop.
The vehicle, is, however, still difficult to start when cold, and when it finally starts, there is a puff of smoke out of the rear (on occasions, but not ALL the time).
I was assuming it was loosing a header tank of coolant every two months, as I have had it two months and it was low when changing the ECT - but this could have been low when I bought it and overlooked.
Can anybody point me in the right direction as to what the problem could be:
Other than the difficulty to start, the car runs lovely, drive great and has no other faults.
- Car is difficult to start when cold. It will turn over about 8-10 times before firing. When hot it will turn over 2-3 times before firing, but most of the time when hot will start on the button
- Coolant is not being lost, nor is any oil (1000 miles and 14 days since last check, and at the exact same level for both)
I have access to VAG-COM if I need to check/change any values within the ECU itself.
I can post videos of the vehicle starting when cold and warm if this will help anybody help me diagnose
