    Exclamation oil and coolant leak

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I just purchased a 2001 a4 for a good price but the seller said that their is an oil and coolant leak. I pick up the car tomorrow and was wondering if there are any common problems related with these symptoms so I can get an idea of repair costs and have somewhere to start looking at when I get the car.

    Coolant and oil leak doesn't help a whole lot. Location and pics would be good. If I had to guess, I'd say rear coolant flange and maybe valve cover gasket.

    I'd ask where it's leaking from. That could be the difference between a cheap, easy fix and a more expensive, larger problem.

    Yes, there are lots of common problems. So many in fact, that you need to be much more specific, lol.
