    Audi A3 2009 1.6l Petrol Sport - Coolant leak, help?!

    Hello all,

    I have only had my car for a few months, it only has 47800 miles on and I seem to have a coolant leak. On saturday when driving the warning light came on and asked me to pull over to check coolant level. When I stopped it was below the minimum line so I topped it up to the max line. Now Monday morning I got to drive my car and the coolant is somewhat below the minimum line again.

    Any ideas? Cost etc?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Needs a pressure test done mate, maybe a leaky rad corner, split pipe etc, when its not wet outside, try leaving some cardboard underneath overnight with bricks on so doesn't blow away to see if its leaking & a rough area where to look for the liquid run, then with a torch you should be able to see the staining, unless its internal, but no issues starting I assume?

    Cheers mate, no issues starting. Will try the test you mentioned hopefully tonight. Just hoping it's not too expensive.
