Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
When i start my car and it is over 70 degrees outside my car likes to start over heating if im not going above 65 MPH. I took it to the dealer and he said my radiator was cracked and needed replaced, but there is never any fluid under my car. I have added coolant and still nothing. Someone please help.
Sometimes, if the leak is small, when car is running and engine hot, you do not get dripping under the car because water is getting vapourized, before dripping down.
Check water level, if water level is going down, then there is either another leak, or the head gasket is going.
When head gasket starts to go , water is vapourized into the engine.
If car overheated after the radiator problem, it is not uncommon that this may had damaged the head gasket, go back to the dealer and complain, as after replacing radiator, the car should had been inspected properly for additional problems.
