i have just purchased a golf mk3 1.9tdi, occasionally i have smelled coolant when driving, i have also noticed a small amount of coolant around the bottom of where the header tank sits, after doing a little more investigating, i have noticed a lot of very tiny air bubbles in the pipe that goes into the header tank, is this normal, are header tank/pressure caps prone to fail? are headgaskets known to fail? the engine is ahu (i think) the car does not overheat.

carried out dye test (turned green =bad) took head off and it was more bent than a banana, one question regards the re-build though, after removing the head i found only one dowel on number 2 headbolt is this right? i would have thought that there would be 2 dowels? any thoughts would be very welcome, many thanks
