Anybody with some advice please post.
Sooooo..... I bought one of those high mileage alternative Vw tdi wagons a few years back and have developed a coolant leak. It is leaking out the reservoir overflow. After the veh.warms up and you put it under a load itll puke out enough coolant to trip the low coolant sensor but has yet to overheat.
I took the thing to the stealership and they replaced the res cap and checked the egr (bypassed) trying to find the cause of the thing building pressure and popping off. Now they are saying that the head gasket is probably the cause and want $1500 to do a head gasket(hg)
The TDI driver guy site( no where as helpful as our coal burner guy site) is divided into two camps, Its your tstat /waterpump or its you hg camps. Im hoping that this whole thing isnt headed for Smitty's "I own a wheeled toilet" thread. Thoughts?
