View Full Version : 2007 A3 leaking coolant (3.2L)

I'm having trouble finding the source of a pretty significant coolant leak. I'm having to refill my expansion tank every morning. It seems to be coming from the back of the engine bay but I haven't been able to narrow it down more than that. Anyone have any suggestions? It could be completely unrelated, but the car has been taking quite a while to warm up to normal temp, like 6-8 miles of cruising at 45mph.

Does anyone have a suggested repair manual for this car? In the past I have gotten Bentley manuals, but I've heard the a3 one won't run on a Mac and I don't have a means to run windows on my macBook.

After you fill the tank, watch and see if it is leaking from the bottom of the tank itself. You may just have to replace the reservoir.
