    I had only checked the coolant the day before i lost it. I check the oil and coolant weekly and have never needed to top up the coolant. And as said in the earlier post the coolant has not moved since monday. Thanks for the advice with the tensioner, I thought it looks simple enough to do-...

    Cant believe it! - Advice needed.

    Thanks for the replies guys. The RAC guy came out and filled the tank up with about 1litre of water. He did all the road side tests for head gasket failure (bubbles in fluid & water in oil etc). which he said was ok. He said he cant see any leaks and that it might be that the cap was not on...

    Yet another coil pack failure + Knocking sound

    Cheers for the reply Juss. I was so p***ed off with the coil packs i just chucked them in a skip! I was driving pretty slow under 50mph etc in 6th. My other half has just said that she heard a tapping sound coming from the engine when idleing about a week ago, but it only lasted a min or...

    A4 B6 TDI to B7 RS4 Conversion

    It’s funny to see how people have reacted to this thread. This was obviously done with clever marketing in mind. The company are banding around cost figures etc, if this was done for marketing purposes, this project would have been cleverly documented within their companies accounts so it will...

    Buying Guide/Advice please!

    Just to put my 2 peneth in. We changed our golf gt tdi 130 2003 last year to the 190 avant we own now. I chose the FWD version as I think 190 bhp is not too much for a FWD, the car still fees sure footed (even in the wet) this will obviously depend on your driving technique & the tyres you...

    My first coil pack failure.

    On the petrol variant - take off the engine cover and there they are, 1 on the top of each cylinder.Just pull them off the spark plug, disconnect from the cable and replace. Really easy 1 min job. you'd be fine.

    My first coil pack failure.

    As it says on the tin. Spirited driving & then it felt like i was setting off in 6th. Its quite worrying as you always fear the worst. Quick scan & error stated that there was misfire on cylinder 2. Luckily there was the Bradford Audi within walking distance so bought 1 (made sure it was...
