That wouldn't turn me off. If a seal isn't leaking I let it be. The chances of a new seal leaking are higher than those of an old seal starting to leak in my experience. Our sedan will be due for it's 4th timing belt soon, it still has both original seals and no leaks.I just called the local shop in Sarniaa with a lot of Volkswagens up front, willy and karl's, even at 300,000 km they weren't going to change the camshaft and crankshaft seal, I'm a bit turned off
I don't know why I haven't seen anyone mention Strictly European Motors (SEM) here, but I took my 2013 golf tdi to get the timing belt and water pump replaced, and they did the serpentine belt and replaced one of the worn tensioner rollers too. Very good prices, honest and professional. I know they have a very good rep in the gasser audi/vw world, hence why I elected to give them a call and settled on going there. Highly recommended if you're in the greater Toronto area looking for a place to go to
top gear import parts in london is fantastic he did my timing belt, dsg, rear brakes, cv boot on my 2014 tdi golf wagon and he was great.Does anyone still recommend AutoBahn in London? I have a head gasket that needs to be done and I'm not certain I want to tackle it myself. I'm also considering Dewey's, anyone had TDI service there? I know he does trucks mostly.
hi guys, I moved from bc to scarborough toronto area (kingston rd) do you guys know any guru guy working on vw on the side ?
thanks a lot
Also, if they didn't SEE a leak, are they saying that it HELD pressure? If so, how are they explaining the vanishing coolant? Sounds like you need a different shop doing the diagnostic.they claim they did a pressure test and didn't see anything that would explain the loss of coolant
