    Wink Need help

    Hi guys, was just wondering if anyone could help me out here,
    i've left my mk3 golf 2.0l 16v GTi in my garage over the winter, starting it every week for about 10 mins, today i started it, as i removed the jump leads, i noticed smoke coming from the block :-( As i looked closer, there was a wet patch on the rear right of the block, it appeared it was leaking out of a gasket, any help would be amasing :-) Thanks Guys

    Hi,
    I've been down again to check in daylight, and get some pictures, and realised it's coming from a hose on the side of the head and leaking down towards the head gasket :-)
    Thanks for the help anyway mate :-)

    i think there is a plastic flange on the side for coolant, they are known for cracking, cheep part to replace and easy to fix. if its not broken it could be a o-ring that is toast under the flange. i had coolant leaking on my trans for a while before i figured it out. best of luck.
    it's a grenade wating to go off !!
