Yes A newbie in need of assistance/advice.I’m running a t28 06 plate and recently had my temperature waring symbol come up on the dash.So I went to my local vw outlet and got myself some lovely new coolant.When I went to top up the reserve bottle I notice what was in the was quite thick black and the cap lid was all globby.I phone my local garage who doe’s all my servicing and mot’s and picked his brains.Iasked is there anyway that the engine oil could somehow cross contaminate into the coolant system.He said its possible that the head gasket has gone and it would require £1500 worth of labour(cam belt,thermostat,water pump,new oil,new coolant,gasket)I’m going to see him fri AM so he can put some pressure test stuff to check whether it is the head gasket.I am looking for a second opinion from anyone with some knowledge of this kind of thing.I would be very grateful for some help and guidance.:*
