    Coolant Loss! 1.8T

    Hi all, first post and got a problem.

    I seem to be losing a lot of coolant on a daily basis. More than a pint or two.

    I can not find the exactly where leak is coming from, but it looks like its coming from the bottom front. I guess this could be the rad, but do you have any other suggestions?

    Water is clean with no sign of oil contamination.

    Thanks

    Yea, I had a good look at the coolant flange, but it seems good. Only losing water when the engine is running if this helps?

    if your only loosing water with the engine running and at the bottom front i would be inclined to think it would be the radiator

    Wouldnt bother with Radweld, doesnt sound like a Small hole to me, Loosing way to much fluid.
