    Coolant leak

    Can anyone tell me what the silver canister looking thing is next to the oil filler cap on this pic?

    http://vw.dpgoldman.com/images/a419tdi.jpg

    Ive a B6 1.8 Turbo with quite a bad coolant leak coming from just below the silver canister thing. Does anyoe know what is under there on the afore mentioned engine?

    Obviousy the pic above isnt of my car, its just there to find out what the silver thing is.

    Sorry for my noobness and cheers for the help.

    Pete.

    Cheers for the pic. Ive found the area the leak is coming from its just below the EGR valve, theres a black plastic pipe housing that fits onto the back of the engine block and the leak is coming from that area, just hoping its the plastic bit and not craked head or bad gasket. Ive got it in the garage tomorow to get the plastic bit replaced so fingers crossed.

    Cheers.
