      Its not that bad but the rhythm is way different then doing steel. When **** gets shiny it's time to move.

      Hey guys,
      Back at UD for grad school. Got myself an mk2 GTI, vr6 swap. Looking for a shop not shy to look at cars far from stock. I heard from the guy who did the motor work before I bought it that he replaced the head gasket with an mk4 gasket instead of the Mk3 which I hear is ok, ups the compression slightly. Saw a little white residue in the oil cap, hoping it is condensation from not much long driving in this weather.

      Any ideas of a shop who is reasonable and local?

      if it looks like butter on the oil cap its just from moisture and oil mixture and its all good. I had it once on my 2.0 back in the day when it actually ran. I'm sure a certain someone with more knowledge will chime in soon.

      Up until today, no issues. Starts strong, and easily. No Cat so the exhaust is a little rich. Had an issue recently with it loosing coolant, but not consistently. The seal on the reservoir cap was cracked, I replaced it. I hope that the coolant issue is resolved with the new cap. The seal around the oil pan needs replacing, so it slowly leaks a few drops of oil. I regularly check, and it is well within the range, on the dipstick.

      Today, after heading out for a quick drive, and encountering plenty of melted snow, the oil light began to flash. This happened after the gauge cluster began to turn on and off (has happened before, hoping it is a loose connection). The oil level was still within range after the light came on. Luckily I was pulling into my place when the light came on.

      oil light comes on for pressure, not level. You could very well have some headgasket issues. And you said the coolant looks good? or no?

      The coolant level has not stayed real constant. I have kept an eye on it, and added some recently. I realized that the reservoir cap was old and cracked. I replaced that today.

      I spoke to the guy who refreshed the motor before he installed it in the MK2, he said her replaced the gasket. Not more than 12k ago. I was surprised to think it would go as quick. I emailed him today, he told me that the breather and intake system I have could cause a little white residue, from condensation.

      I want to let the new snow clear and see if the oil pressure light comes on again.
