    hello my audi 1.9 tdi is losing water and a lot of white smoke is coming out of the exhaust
    think it may be the head gasket?

    any tips would be great as i will do the job myself

    If you have an EGR cooler it could possibly be that

    It's a bit hard to diagnose on that alone, is there any sludge on the oil cap or in the header tank?
