YES!!!!
-do not under any circumstances just buy over-the-counter coolant
-the details are in your owners manual or directly from the local VW dealership
-yes, you will pay more...but read the following article....as it beautifully explains the vast variety of choices and consequences when doing this job

I need to know what type of special coolant my car takes it is a 99 chrysler lhs, it says it takes special coolant but does not say what kind,it says look in the owners manual and I dont have one.. PLEASE...


Owners Manuals for everything are very cheap and plentiful on eBay. There is only the green and the orange stuff out there and your warranty is long gone, not so much to worry about. The turn of the century brought about the orange and so many problems associated with it that once the warranty is over, most folks use good old green. You can call a dealer and ask for service please, when you hear a voice ask that guy what color coolant you should be using in a 99 LHS.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.


The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower motor replacement to resolve the issue.


If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you enough then it's better to have it replaced.


Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.


A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it when necessary.


Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

There are two coolant temp sensors. One by the oil filler tube and one near the bottom radiator hose near the radiator.
When you flushed the coolant did you replace with VW rated G12 coloant? Very Important! - You can't use over the counter coolant - it'll cause sludge in your system. You have to use G12...

Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.
