Hi. New here. Sorry for long post but could use some help/guidance. Own 2014 Passat SE 2.5, purchased new Oct. 2013. Current mileage 58,426.

Back in August had an engine code for Cylinder 1 misfire. Local mechanic replaced all spark plugs and ignition coils. One week later, Check Coolant light appears. Low on coolant, add a bit. One week later, misfire codes appear again. Back to mechanic; he finds spark plug 1 wet with coolant. Replaces plug and runs another diagnostic, no other issues located. A few days later, Check Coolant light back on, along with engine/misfire codes. Mechanic kept car for 3 days trying to figure out what was going on. He thinks coolant is leaking, causing plugs to get wet. (I did hear a "whooshing" sound one day, kind of like waves crashing, when driving the car one afternoon.) Car is now parked in garage/not using it.

Mechanic suggests going to dealership to evaluate. My warranty is up (over time limit, but not mileage). Any suggestions? Anyone else ever have this issue? Hate to give up on this car, as it's been great up to now. Thanks!
