    Hello, Last week I noticed that my car was leaving some drips on the drive-way. Not much, but noticeable.

  19. VW Engine and Gearbox
    My 2012 Golf 1.6 TDI started to smoke heavily whilst under load at about 65 uphill on the motorway with a loud pinking / knocking sound. The smoke seems to be fuel not oil. Its not a continuous noise and it's mainly under load but also decelerating at low speed. I took it in for a diagnostic...
