Recently bought an audi a3 2.0 tdi and by the sounds of things I have been sold a wreck!!
First the turbo and now a possible leak?
i was driving my car home two days ago only to be alarmed by the coolant warming light. I left it till the next morning then on a cold engine i topped up the fluid, I drove the car around all day as I would normally from there on. The next day out of curiosity I checked the coolant level to see it at min? I took it for a drive and it was back up to the correct level, but is this just because of expansion?
I had it pressure tested when I had the turbo looked at and he said he did a 15 minute test with someone keeping the revs up at 2500 rpm for the whole time and it all turned out okay, there is no visible leaks in the lines either. I'm rather worried, especially knowing this bkd engine has the common porous head..
Can anyone suggest things to check or if I need to get the garage to do a longer test?
