    Hi Dean, The oil is black. There is no other sign other than foam on inside of tappet cover and oil filler cap. I'm leaning towards the piston rings and a slight water to oil contamination. there is no gassing in the header tank. Is a replacement piston ring set an easy job with the Golf?

    kind regards

    Andrew
