Just got the old unit out. Last shop apparently used some copper based gasket sealer on the turbo to cat flange...

    Hello Everyone… I’m hoping someone can assist me. I have viewed many discussions related to coolant leaks, but nothing seems to speak to my issue specifically. My car’s ignition is off … I pour coolant in the coolant reservoir … I leaks out immediately, not from the coolant reservoir tank...

    Ordered the blaupart kit to do valve cover gaskets, camshafts, cam chain tensioners and valley plugs on my 2000 Passat V6 (ATQ). The valve cover gaskets (Elwig, made in Denmark) don't seem to be all that snug...Do I just mash them down and pray? Jack
