    Default 3.2 gsi and coolant....

    when the car's warm, it stinks of hot coolant....

    it was smelly (a tiny bit) before the plugs where done, but it's much worse now (after).

    I spoke to VX and they are going to have a look and see what the problem is.

    it goes in on Wednesday.

    alanv6 had the same trouble not a massive loss of water just every now and then but a antifreeze smell. it was the sealant on the oil cooler so relaced it and resealed it.
