Hi all

Got a 57 3.0 d Altitude. The coolant warning lights been on today and upon checking found that the level had dipped below minimum. The cars running at normal temperature but I wondered if this is normal for a 7 month old car with 11k on the clock?

Not had any other problems yet

Your thoughts would be appreciated

Regards

Check out other posts on the forum - I had a similar problem and thanks to other members realised that I had a oil cooler failure and oil was getting into the coolant system!

Hi,

Yep, as Geoff has said this can be a sign of a faulty oil cooler (I suffered this problem with my 54 plate 2.5tdi)

FOLLOW UP

Four weeks on and coolant gone again. Got VW assistance out andthey've identified a leak on the system.

Car has gone in yesterday to be examined, looks like an engine out job to get at the leak

Currently driving around in a nice orange Mondeo hire car from VW assist (its just like driving a ? 40k Treg?!?!)

I am told that engine out is at least five days with the Stealer!

Hi,

not lost any coolant. But my 08 2.5TDi has just been recalled for a replacement Oil Cooler - same recall ?. See if I can find any codes on the job sheet.
