    3.0 Quattro Coolant Leak

    Guys,

    Ive had a pretty persistent coolant leak in my 3.0 which was 'apparently' fixed before but has resurfaced and seen the pink fluid today in the snow.

    Has anyone has this same problem and if so, in what part of the engine exactly did the leak come from?


    Thanks!

    is it possible that your coolant mix wasn't strong enough and it has frozen recently, perhaps popping a hose partly off or splitting a hose? Or did it start before the cold spell?
    Anybody selling a polisher? PM me.

    I would have thought it would be a split hose - maybe a pressure test would help?

    If it was the waterpump I don't think you would be seeing any puddles?......
