Take the skid plate down and there should be a drain plug on the bottom of your radiator or just pull bottom hose once drained start the car for just a few seconds no more to get all the old stuff out put plug back in or reatach hose then fill make sure to (burp the system) make sure air pockets are out check by leaving cap off and squezing the top hose

I am trying to drain the cooling system on my 1999 Passat 2.8. I am having problems figuring out a way to drain old coolant from engine block. I can't find the water pump drain plug or any plug...


hello.
there is a very small kind of screw just in the lowest part of the radiator, just remove it.
if you don't see this so clear just do it disconnecting the big lowest hose on the radiator,
hope this help you...

How many spark plugs in it and how do you get to them....1999 vw passat 1800 turbo


there are three retainers that hold the top cover onto the valve cover. Remove that cover. You will then see four coils. Uplug and remove the four coils they will just pull up. The 4 spark plugs will be under the coils.

My 1.8 20v turbo has no power but builds up


Check fuel system. Leaks,Dirty filter can cause this
condition. You could have gotten a tank full of bad fuel. If this is the case ,you must drain all fuel and dispose of it properly. Change the fuel filter AGAIN.
This should keep you busy this weekend.

OH, by the way you may have to replace the Turbo!!

I have a 1999 VW Passat 1.8l turbo. It has codes P0300 and others


They may not be firing. I would check spark from coils. You may have a bad coil pack. Do check for any vacuum lines. You can go to autzone.com and register for full free online repair manual

It is located at bottom of radiator, you will need 1/2 inch square drive or a 3/16 inch hex drive to open drain valve. Usually on pass. side at bottom end of radiator.
