Question about 1992 Volkswagen GTI
Hello, yesterday my car over heated, or so i thought i looked under the car and it was leaking anti-freeze all over the ground..i started the car and smoke was poring through the vents. So i immediatly shut off the car and was forced to get it towed home. My question is, does it sound more like just a break in the anit-freeze cables or would the damage be more extensive than that and be an issue with heating core. Also if so, i don't know much about cars and the heating core and dont really know how it works i know the antifreeze passes through there, but this would mean a whole replacement of the part, correct? I was also wondering, my car is a 92 Volkswagon GTI it would be nice for an estimated price of the parts, of possible and if i could get some more information on this issue.
Greatly Appriciated, Kelly
It would be the heater core if you are losing antifreeze like that and getting it in the vents. cost of the part shoud be under 50.00
