    I just did my 30k oil change. Pulled the magnetic drain plug and found a bunch of metal flakes on it. About 5 or 6, flat metal flakes. Pretty small. Where would this be from? Pretty sure bearing material is non-ferrious. Did this show up for the cam failures?

    Have an 06 jetta tdi. Just before the 06.5. Thought I would top off the water in the battery, but don't see how to open it. I saw a pic of someone elses and they had screw in caps for each cell, but mine does not have those.

    coolant loss?

    I bought my 06 tdi new in july. Mostly check the coolant once a month or so. Noticed that the coolant level was below the low mark now. I was wondering if this was normal or not? I normally don't see any losses at all in any new car, but this pink stuff might be different.
