Back on Nov. I changed the Antifreeze in my Golf to the Prestone Green type of Antifreeze. I then drove the car to Florida and back, and noticed upon comming back that I had a bit of Black Engine Oil in my coolant bottle!
I spoke to the dealer, and he says that this is common for older VW Diesels and not to worry about it.
Well, the other day my low coolant light came on. So I pulled over and checked the coolant bottle, and it was black as can be, but full.
I came home, emptied the coolant bottle and when I removed the bottom hose, this thick black oil came rolling out of it.
I washed the bottle out with degreaser, and A LOT of oil came out of this bottle. AFter I could finally see what was inside the bottle, I re-installed it, put new antifreeze in, and now I'm waiting to see what happens.
Can anyone out there help me to determine what the possible cause of this could be??
I'm not getting any Antifreeze in my Engine Oil, and the car runs like a top otherwise. It has 300,000kms on it.
