Vw golf Mk3 VR6 gearbox/cooling system


I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.

Can't change to fifth gear. other gears are fine and engine sounds smooth enough. its a 2003 polo actually, not golf. 1.2, manual, petrol


selector forks on the fifth gear are worn out but don,t let a garage take the gearbox out it can be fixed in place . had the same problem on my golf mk3 vr6 get the parts from a scrap yard should take about half an hour in the right hands to fix

Your cable from the battery needs to be in great shape. If this happens mostly when the weather is very hot, it is quite likely the cause.
