    Hey guys

    Had abit of a look at the coolant the other day and it seamed abit oily, initialy I thought it might be the head gasket, which would not be a good thing, but the temperature doesn't seem to be soaring as I would expect it to if it was gone. I have heard about people having leaking oil coolers, has anyone had this happen before?

    My plan is to give the cooling system a flush and stick in some new coolant to see what happens.

    Thanks

    I had the very same symptoms on a B5 1.6 ( many years ago) and it was the oilcooler that failed.The G12 coolant in the expansion bottle turned into a very thick brown emulsified oil .
