Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
The coolant light popped on, before I knew it the car just stopped. The engine would not even turn over. The battery was not even dead, everything worked except for the engine!
If the car is manual try putting it in 4th gear (on the flat with the handbrake off and get some help to give it a push. The engine should turn and the car should move with difficulty. If the car just sort of bounces back on you when you stop pushing, it would appear that the engine has siezed. If you can then get a socket head on the front of the crankshaft you should be able to turn the engine when out of gear. It will be easier if the plugs are removed. If not you're going to be looking for an engine I'm afraid.
Best of luck
