I would highly suggest a pressure test to really pin point this leak. I can tell from diagram that the coolant expansion tank line goes right thru that area. I would also caution you to the obvious with this vehicle- everything is a tight fit and coolant leaking from the t-stat housing and or water pump could look similiar. I strongly suggest a pressure test to keep from throwing good money away.

Water leakin from bottom of engine


The Most common leak on the 4.3 and 5.7 are from the Bypass Hose on TOP of the Intake Manifold. It is a Quick Disconnect Fitting that corrodes and then leaks and then drains down the back of the motor.

The next possibility is a Heater Hose

Depending on how bad the leak is... If you have been running Water or a Majority Water, the FREEZE PLUGS or EXPANSION PLUGS will corrode and the water eats the metal and BAM!!!! leak

If you can provide more information, but I would start there.

I have a 2001 VW Passat I wish to flush the radiator system out but dont know how to drain the system


So far since VW started using phosphate free coolant (pink or red), I haven't seen the need to flush it. This depends whether it was mixed with tap water or other coolant. Anyway, there is a drain valve at the bottom left side of the radiator along the lower hose. Just turn it lefty lucy. Just make sure it isn't hot and pressurized or it will scald you, so open the reservoir cap first before you attempt on opening the valve.

NOTE: Make sure you use only VW G12 coolant and if you need to mix water, the best is filtered drinking water (reverse osmosis), not bottled but something like Brita.

Pls. rate this suggestion, thank you.

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat


Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

Coolant leankin in pump area


Using a small mirror (available at parts stores w/ a nice long handle, not expensive either) check to see if the leak is from a small 'weep' hole under the pump, at the center. If this is where the leak is, it is a sign that your water pump is on the way out, and should be replaced. This leak will get worse as time goes on, so keep an eye on the coolant level, as it may go down quickly. Let me know what u find.

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.
