Just got back from the shop. It is indeed a head gasket leak. Coolant is
getting into cylinder #1 (the notorious leaking part of the head, of
course). I'm going to be getting the parts next week, and next weekend
I'm going to be replacing it, and taking pictures the whole way. I'll do
a write-up and maybe Andy can add it to the library.
The gasket set that they had contained the old style head gasket (fiber,
paper, whatever) so they're going to order me a mk4 gasket (metal), and
swap it for me (I hope).
Until then, have a lovely day
And yes, I think I've totally lost it, because I'm EXCITED about doing
the head gasket. Scary.
