  2. Jetta IV 2.0L Found Coolant Leak, Need Part Number (Small tube, T/Y connector)

    Hey fellow enthusiasts, I am a hobbyist who loves to fix up my own car. Recently my Jetta gave me the red warning for coolant. Turns out I had a pretty bad coolant leak. The car wouldn't drive more than 10 miles before leaking out all the coolant I added in. I was investigating the leak and...
  3. Hoping someone can help with this leak or leaks puzzle...is it all related?

    Bear with me please I'm new to this. My son's 2002 Jetta wagon 2.0L.

  7. Repairing a coolant fitting to avoid buying a 150.00 dollar hose!!!

    After a couple years VW quit making the cooling system on an mk3 with T fittings and went to large expensive integrated radiator hoses. This is great if your car came with them already, but for those of us with the old style it can be really expensive to replace a broken fitting or worn hose...
  8. Vr6 Heater Core Blow Up

    My Heater Core blew up and spewed steam and Glycol all over me last week. I was quite dizzy and high for sometime. The car water temp raised to 230 or so and stabilized enough for me to get home. The oil temp climbed to 240 and stabilzed. Today, I circumvented the Heater Core at the firewall...
  9. Coolant Leak on my VR6

    This past weekend I noticed I was leaking coolant pretty good. I found where it was leaking from, which was/is leaking around what looks to be a sensor that plugs into my engine (97 VR6). I think its the engine temp sensor because its leaking coolant. The engine never overheated or ran hot. It...
