Question about 1999 Volkswagen New Jetta
Every other week i have to fill out the radiator i really don't know why! I check for leaks and i didn't find any, and the engine doesn't overheat at all either. Please help!!! thanks
Either the water pump is bad and water is leaking out of the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump while the engine is running OR you have a blown head gasket that is letting coolant seep into a cylinder and it is being burned by the engine. Have another car follow you on the highway while doing about 60 MPH or 100KPH and then floor the gas on the car and see if the car following you can see any smoke or mist looking exhaust coming from your car. If they do see mist or smoke coming from your exhaust, you most likely have a blown head gasket that is allowing coolant to be burnt by a cylinder.
If you can't afford to repair the car at this time, if you keep your eye on the coolant level and refill it when it needs coolant, you could continue to drive the car until you save the money for the proper repair.
Much good luck.

I have a 1999 jetta that pukes out antifreeze after driving it. It will do it after about 4 or 5 hours after driving it. It never over heats. This last week, I noticed the antifreeze running out of the motor on the left side. We are not sure where it is coming from. We bought a water pump thinking it was that but discovered the water pump was on the opposite side of the leak. Do you have any suggestions.
