This is pink coolant. The vin is truaf38j781000266. The coolant level is always between the proper marks on the reservoir.
thanks
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 6 months ago

if you can look inside the reservoir there is a metal U shaped element . does the element look like it has a coating of residue?

thanks
