  1. Coolant disappearing, Heat on and off, Overheating

    MK3
    Hey so my '99 Jetta Wolf has had a blinking coolant light for about a month now, and I just checked the coolant level before going out and I was putting in about a gallon every 2 weeks. Just this week the temp gauge shot up for 230 and sat there, scared the hell out of me. Now the thing goes...

  3. Shear Bolts!!!!!!!!!!!!! madness

    MK3
    When I return from the West Coast next week I will be faced with the realization that currently more of my car is on the floor of my garage than actually in the car.

  7. Vr6 Heater Core Blow Up

    MK3
    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...
