VW Golf mk5 TSI - help!
The missus golf is driving us up the wall. Just when you think it's going to be ok it throws a spanner in the works.
We have a coolant problem. The car recently lost coolant and dipped below the minimum, topped it up and kept an eye on it. It dropped a little but I put it down to a possible air lock moving into the header tank. The missus got back to the car from work and there's coolant under the car, about half to a third of a pint. She pops the bonnet and it's dipped below the minimum. She tops it up, as she adds coolant it eventually levels up to just under the max line. Gets home and pops the bonnet, the coolant level is now a couple of inches above the max. What is going on?
A mate at work mentioned impeller bearing or water pump. Not happy!
