  1. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi everyone, I have a pretty significant coolant leak in my Jetta, it falls below the minimum line overnight every night. However, I am having some trouble locating where it might be coming from. I have the 2.0L engine. The other day I saw a puddle on the driver side. Looking up from...
  2. Golf III & Jetta III
    I’m sorry I’m not sure if I’m on the right thread but I’m stumped. I have a 2017 Jetta with a 1.4 turbo. It overheated and I replaced the thermostat/water pump assembly. It’s acting like the car needs to burp out all the air but I can’t get it to. I’ve raised the front of the car idled it for a...
  3. CC
    Hey guys, I have a 2013 2.0t CC, and I woke up to my car having no coolant. This happened once last January, but the car had been sitting for. month as I was out of the country. Back then, I just topped it off and drove away, and didn't have issues until today. It's pretty weird to me that all...

    It happened yesterday for the first time after having my Lupo (1.4v 75cv from y2000) for 6y. - Problem All levels are good, no leaks so far, no bubbles within the pink liquid until it starts boiling after 15 min of engine running. The small hose is retrieving coolant from the engine to the...

  6. Golf/GTI VI
    Hi There, I have a mk 6 GLI and I recently replaced the thermostat. I can drive the car for a bit but if I'm in stop and go traffic it starts at 190 and keep climbing until I drive again then it's drops back down and goes back up when I slow or stop, when the car gets hot the AC stops blowing...
  7. Jetta/GLI VI
    I have a 2015 Jetta SE with about 85k on it. It's leaking coolant and I'm really struggling to figure out where from. Hoping someone here might be able to help! The coolant leaks off the oil pan, but the highest I can trace it is what looks to be a wire clip. I got a good picture from the...
  8. Golf V R32
    So I replaced my thermostat housing and the sensor as it was leaking previously in my mk5 vw r32. After doing so and cleaning out and fully flushing my coolant system I am now getting a p2185 code for a high circuit from temp sensor 2. I'm running g12 coolant, and the sensor in the thermostat is...

  12. CC
    so right after i get my car out the shop (transmission replacement), i noticed around a day or two after that all the coolant was gone because my light came on, and it was. So i refilled it thinking nothing of it,then the same thing happened again. For the past couple of days now I have been...
  13. Golf/GTI VII
    Hi all! I had this annoying instance where the AC was not blowing cold air but more so room-temp air. I had a warning: STOP - ENGINE OVERHEATING. Yay. The temp was in the 140-150 region. It’s currently 34 °C Celsius out. I checked the coolant and it was at optimal level with no boiling effect...
  14. Golf/GTI VII
    What’s up y’all my car suddenly started to make a very weird noise exactly like if I were revving the engine but it’s not rpm as the noises are separate. It seems the faster I go the louder and more noticeable the noise gets regardless if I hit the gas or not literally as if the engine were...

  17. CC
    Sup everyone. Realized I've been doing harm to the TSI for the last month with the GM coolant. To be innocent, I purchased this 2012 CC from a family Ford dealer. They claimed they did an oil change and checked all systems. Fortunately, I don't trust dealers and did my own oil change. This...
  18. Passat (B5)
    I have a V6 4motion wagon, lately its been losing all of its coolant in the reservoir after shutting the car off and letting it sit. It appears to be coming from around that red cap on the radiator, a huge puddle is around that and that spot/area is covered in coolant. It started out as a small...
  19. Golf/GTI VII
    Hi folks, I'm looking for opinions/recommendations here on dealing with contaminated coolant. I have a 2015 USA MK7 GTI SE DSG (all stock), ~57k miles. My coolant is a strange "coffee with cream" or chocolate milk color. Very smooth, fluid texture, doesn't seem greasy. Even after a flush and...
