2004 1.8t avant sline.
light pack/cool box/black roof lining etc
Full service history/cam belt changed/all aux belts and rollers changed etc.
12mts MOT etc.
So if anybody...
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-...
Thanks for all the advice guys.
Well, the rac guy told me to monitor it over the next few days. I have done and it hasnt moved.
I dont know what has been going on! But even though it hasnt moved I will still worry when I need to make a big journey... and here was me thinking that buying an...
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...
Bub, which pipes do you mean - there is a black metal pipe and then a bronze thinner pipe both running parallel to the head. Is it one of these.
Im calling the RAC in morn to tow me to a garage i just dont want to get done over!
Thanks for the help though.
Just got out to car this morn & warning light came on for coolant.
Lifted bonnet and there is no coolant in the bottle at all!
There is no white gunk on oil filler cap, but after checking with a torch there is lots of coolant down right hand side of engine (above and...
Cheers for the reply Juss.

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...
Really peed off, I was on my way to get my car taxed between appointments at work (ran out yesterday!), before I got to the post office my car started juddering and the engine light started flicking.
I new instantly another coil pack had failed ( my first coil pack failed about 6wks ago ) so i...
Its 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...
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...
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.
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...
