Question about 1985 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 85 jetta gli and i cant find the drain for the anti freeze i looked on the radiator. but it looks against the frame
To drain it just take the bottom radiator hose off turn your car on for like 20 seconds with it off keep an eye on the temp gauge and then turn it off
put the hose back on tight
then get coolant ready or water
start the car again then very quckley start putting what ever you want to use back in to the radiator
DO NOT PUT WATER OR ANYTHING IN TO A WARM MOTOR WITH OUT IT RUNNING AS IT WILL CRACK THE HEAD
IF USING A HOSE HAVE IT DOWN LOW SO IT DOSE NOT FILL TO QUICK
GO FOR A QUICK DRIVE CLOSE TO HOME TO CHECK THAT YOU HAVE THE HOSE ON TIGHT ENOUGH
DON'T BE AFFRAD TO GIVE IT SOME GAS AS THIS WILL MAKE A HIGHER WATER PRESSURE AND WILL TEST IF IT IS GOING TO COME OFF OR NOT IF YOU GET HOME THEN YOU ARE FINE IF YOUR MOTOR STARTS TO GET HOT DONT CONTINUE TO DRIVE IT CHECK THE HOSE AND FIX IT WHERE YOU ARE CARRY WATER AND ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED
hope this helps
