    2007 Eos 2.0 TDI cooling system issues

    Hi, can anyone help, I have a 2007 Eos 2.0 TDI, 84000 miles full service history etc.

    1st it went into a garage for a misfire under a RAC warrenty, then told it was a injector that failed, so they replaced it, also during its visit I was also told noise from turbo, but told to continue to drive a few was then bring back under warranty, OK I did then I was told turbo caused cam damage and followers, so yes 2k bill to repair. I was told they also replaced water pump and belts etc, one week out garage and coolent loss issues, car went back about 4 times and I was told they could not find any leak, anyway cut story short, they put new expansion bottle on, but still issues, and they say they never damaged my car, and I must prove it. Never had any cooling problem before prior to the repairs.

    2 other garage looked at it and they also not sure what the problem is. Again they swop new expansion tank but still same issue and it's costing me a dam fortune with no definite conclusion. System over pressures and stop light comes on.

    They said : sniff test done and seems ok
    Water pump check and seems OK
    Flushed cooling system out
    No other signs of leaking coolent etc.

    I'm really at the end of my last nerve now, any advice appreciated.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this moved post.

    I would change your garage if I were you as a turbo won't cause cam and follower damage, its a totally different component. These are common faults you can Google.

    Find a good garage to do a full cooling system pressure test and the pressure cap on the expansion bottle.

    The radiators are prone to leaks in the left lower corner.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
