More Coolant issues! Beyond a joke now!!
Hi guys! Im at my wits end with my car now, really dont know whats going on!!!!
Posted on here about a month ago about the coolant problems I was having and how I thought the head on my car was cracked, as it's head number was in the group that have had the most problems.
Since then the car has been into a local VW specialist and due to vaious problems was there for 2 and a half weeks!! The head came off and was pressure tested and all was fine, no cracks! So it was skimmed and put back in and the head gasket replaced. It has also had a new radiator, new oil pump and new water pump as well as new cambelt.
Despite this I'm still getting the coolant warnnig light coming on the DIS! Checked the coolant level and the expansion bottle was pretty much empty so I filled to half way between the min and max lines. Over the next couple of days I was gettin the light intermittent so thought it might be a faulty sensor. Checked level last night and was low again, so topped up right to the maximum line. Have driven 30 miles to work this morning and checked level as soon as I got to work and it has dropped to just above the min level, and that was after removing the cap and allowing the pressure to suck it back up into the bottle!!
Where could the coolant be goin??? there is still no puddles uner the car and the engine bay is bone dry so it isnt leaking!! Im totally baffled as to wahts going on! Please please please can someone give me any ideas on whats happening. This has already cost me £1700 so dont really want to shell out any more!!!
