Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
So, my girlfriends 2002 Passat has had a lot of issues lately. The back doors don't open. One opens from the outside only and the other does not open from either side.
Last night, it was broken into and one window was broken. We drove it to work to have a place to keep it while the repair guy came and when we were about to park, a "STOP" light came on and it said to "check the coolant." She just drove it this afternoon down the street and then tried to start it again right after parking outside, and it is completely dead now!!
So, two things:
1.) What is the best way to fix the doors and how much do you estimate it to cost?
2.) Any ideas why the car died. A jump did not work. It seems like it could be something else. Fuses? Coolant problem?
ASAP please! Thanks
As for the doors, you will have to check the linkages behind the locks. Some times the linkages work loose and with long use disengage from there normal place. To do this you willhave to remove the door inner panal to gain access. Now for the coolant. Check your oil for water and oil mixing together. If that is the case, it looks like salad cream. This indicates that the possible cause could be a falied head gasket. As for the price of the repairs, I would not like to comment not having seen the extent of the repairs but recommend that you take the car to a machanic that you trust, if you are not skilled enough to tackle the work your self.
