if you're doing short journeys then thats normal mate. i wouldnt worry about it unless youre actually getting any problems. If you take your car on a nice motorway run and then have a look at the cap it wouldnt have that on there if everything is fine
I get that with mine during the cold weather, told by a vw speclist not to worry its a common thing on the vw petrol engines, its when you get oil in the coolant bottle or mayonaise on the dipstick that you have to start worrying
Yes i only use the car on short journeys 2 miles to work and back and that's it. Going to Bristol tomorrow for new years which is a 3 hour journey so i'll check it then and it should be all clear. Thanks for the replys.
Had the exact same thing with my 1.6 was like that for 2 years with no problem, it's not the head gasket unless your seeing that stuff on the dipstick or oil in the coolant bottle (as said a few posts above)
