    A4 2.7 coolant loss

    Hi
    purchased a 58 plate A4 se 2.7 with 36k miles
    Have noticed that the coolant goes down
    Been checking and took it back to the dealers (It as 1 year warranty from them)
    They check it and pressure checked it
    577 miles later gone from full to just below min
    does the 2.7 have the water cooled ERG as the 3l
    Has any body else had these problems
    Cheers

    I recently filled my coolant bottle after 29K miles. It also drinks oil!

    Yes
    Exhaust Gas Recirulation

    I did quite a few short runs tonight dropping the boys at various places and I couldn't help but notice the smell of coolant.

    Hi
    if you can smell it, i would guess it an external leak so most likey loose / broken hose and evaporation off the hot engine

    It would be appreciated. All the time you're losing fluid, someone out there on two wheels is more at risk.

    I've had the coolant pump and belt replaced. Hopefully the problem has gone away.
