Under the hood there is a ball looking bottle that is white in color. It usually has a blue cap. That is the coolant reservoir and the only way coolant can be added to the system.

it should be on the drivers side near the firewall/strut tower.

The thermostat will show what the guage shows. the seal on the coolent bottle can be checked for tightness. so it could be a faulty sensor?

I cant find where the radiator cap is on my 97 jetta glx to refill the radiator the reservoir is full just need to fill the radiator but dont know where???


Your overflow cap is your radiator cap. What you may want to do is check the thermostat housing for a bleeder. Just in case the thermostat housing is where your upper radiator hose mets your engine. On top of it may be a bleeder valve. Let the car come up to normal temp and open the valve slightly until antifreeze comes out then tighten it up.

Over heating and loss of coolant


Need to check your radiator flow, and thermostat, start the engine cold, with radiator cap off, watch for the water in the radiator, when it starts to bubble over let it, keep water hose close, radiator should blow back till the thermostat opens, the water will go down, and add more water if needed, and put the cap back on,,,, if your thermostat is stick closed it will cause over heating......and you may have to have it replaced.
