Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I have replaced the head gasket, water pump, thermostat, and heater core. My car will run for about ten minutes then start to lose water out the resevoir. I had the resevoir checked it is fine. I also did a pressure test and the whole system hold pressure. So what should i try next?
Make sure u have no air pockets in ur coolant system.Remove the overflow cap and let the engine run for awhile and rev the motor a bit to make sure it heats up faster. U should see air bubbles in ur overflow bowl. Do this until no bubbles come out. Could take 30 mins and be careful cause the coolant could splash upwards, a good 2-3 inches above the bowl. Just make sure when ur done u rinse under the wood really well with a garden hose.
Hope this helps.

You mention losing water out the reservior by which means? out the top or is it being sucked in through the over flow hose?
