VW G13 is pink/red.That stuff looks brighter red than just rust from here. Hope it's not some "head gasket in a bottle" shit that just clogs up heater cores and any other small passageway.
Aha. The pink antifreeze I've seen seems a lighter pink starting out anyway but age and reaction makes sense.VW G13 is pink/red.
Best guess at the head gasket corrosion is that someone left coolant in the motor long enough for the gasket to become the sacrificial anode.
Check the alternator output just to be extra sure you caught the whole problem. Unless you have an actual volt gauge in the dash and not just an idiot light.I expect that. But I wasn't about to drive across town to O'Reilly Auto Parts, AdvancedAuto, or some small auto parts store. Definitely wasn't going to buy one from the stealership.
Same is true for vacuum tubes. That doesn't mean all the rebrands have the same spec, tolerance, QC, etc. Budget brands gladly pick up at a discount the ones that don't pass muster for premium while others really are the same thing with a different label.There's only a few companies left that make lead acid batteries. The Autozone battery probably rolled off the same Johnson Controls or Exide manufacturing line as the OEM battery.
Don't know how their new stuff is. My floor jack of theirs has to be 20 years old by now, maybe more, maybe not. Lots of use from me and a few other folks. Never twisted or bent or let a car down when it wasn't supposed to.I was smart enough to not trust harbor freight for jacks or jack stands in the first place.
The model number on my is not on the recall list.. you think harbor freight will still let me return them?
I returned mine today. Check your model numbers, guys.
