New to me 2008, FSI V8. Coolant level was low ~ 2 quarts. White goo on oil cap. Dipstick looks good.

The white goo doesn't necessarily bother me. Coolant level does. I come from a Land Rover background where head gasket failures are commonplace. I don't see that the FSI has head gasket issues?

I topped everything off so I can get a base-line reading on any coolant loss/transfer.

My question is this: Are there any other routes, besides head gaskets, for coolant to enter the oil system?

I'll do an oil analysis for sure, but because I'm new to this engine, wanted to make sure I shouldn't be looking anywhere else.

Thanks! - Willy
