    2.0 TDI 140 coolant usage

    have a 2005 2.0 TDI a6 with 125K on the clock and it uses a lot of coolant has to be toped up every couple of days went from Birmingham to Bedford and needed to top up twice because light came on there are no visible leaks the oil is clean and water are clean the oil cooler was changed about 1000 miles ago this has not fixed the problem this was advised by Audi that it need it changing anyone know why the coolant usage is so high EGR valve and cooler were done at 80K head and head gasket were done at 87K

    start car with run for few seconds stop then take off rad cap. if pressure head gasket may not be sealing.... also run it with cap off to see if it quickly pushes water out as could be blowing out the overflow

    Ooops, had the same problem many many times and recorded this with Audi. I filled myself many time but always bought the coolant from the dealer as a way of recording this. Eventually, I stopped this practice and just took it to them every time as it was still under warranty.
    I ended up having the cylinder head replaced TWICE.......The cracked cylinder head issue was suspected.....no issues since!
