Check out water pump for leaking. If it is coming out of overflow thermostat may be sticking.

SOURCE: 2002 VW Jetta 1.8T has a leak somewhere.Need diagram

Bring the car into a repair shop and have them pressure test it for leaks or you can purchase a pressure tester make sure you get the appropriate adapter for your cars radiator filler neck or resovoir, and check for leaks yourself. Make sure the car is cold and there is the appropriate mixtiure of coolant and water in the system, prior to pressure testing. Also do a visual inspection of the cooling system when the vehicle is cold and look for leaks.

SOURCE: what type of antifreeze do i use in my 2000 VW new

Volkswagon sells their own antifreeze for use in the New Beetles. It's an extended life antifreeze, but may be slightly modified from the commonly available extended life antifreeze available in your auto parts store. You can always ask the counter rep at Autozone or O'Riely's if they would recdommend the standard extended life antifreeze.

SOURCE: need diagram 2001 vw new beetle fuse panel. When I

The #1 fuse is in the upper left corner of the fuse panel, actually its the top fuse in the third row down, but row No. 1 and No. 2 do not have any fuses in the upper left corner. There are a total of 23 fuses in the upper most section. Fuse #24 is the first fuse in the lower section of fuses (upper left corner of that section as well.

The block diagram for the fuse panel is also contained in Section 3.2 of your Owner's Manual. The fuses are numbered in each section from top to bottom starting in the upper left. Fuses 1 thru 23 in the top section, fuses 24 thru 44 in the bottom section which consists of three columns.

Flashing red light mean


A flashing red temperature indicator means your fluid level is low. The 99 beetle takes VW-specific antifreeze; do NOT buy standard green antifreeze for it! Fluid should be added to the round overflow bottle located on the passenger side corner of the engine compartment. Fill the container to the MAX line indicated on the bottle. I use Pentosin Pentofrost SF in mine, available at O'Reilly Auto Parts. As with most antifreeze products, mix it 1:1 with water before adding.

Cars do not normally "use" antifreeze, so if you keep having to add antifreeze, you should check for leaks. Heater hoses or radiator hoses are the most common places for leaks to occur, but the plastic thermostat housing is susceptible to cracking, so check that as well. Otherwise, you could be looking at a leaking radiator or heater core. Worst case scenario would be a leaking head gasket allowing fluid to escape into the cylinders, but that should be suspected only after everything else has been checked. The only other place you would ever see a fluid leak would be a bad freeze plug on the block, but those are very uncommon.

May have radiator fluid in oil 2001 vw beetle


An oil leak mixing with coolant is an internal leak, which is usually the result of a faulty or damaged head gasket, or cracked head. This is a major repair job, because the entire top of the engine has to be removed to do the repair. You can't see the leak because it's inside the engine, not outside of it. White smoke (steam) should be coming out of the exhaust pipe if this is true.

2004 VW Bug leaking antifreeze. small puddles found every morning or after 8hr day under front passenger side of engine. Pressure tested and sealant added, no leak found by mechanic. Still leaking and...


the VW beetle has a plastic radiator, where the cap is if you look to the front of that it does a 90, it is cracked there. Here is the fun part, with a throx wrench ( I think it was a T-30) take apart the fenders and front bumper. At the auto parts store there is a plastic tank repair kit, the kit includes resign,fiber glass cloth, and a stick. You will need to rough up the crack as it is right where it angles and lay on the cloth and resign. Let it dry and it will not leak from there again. Good Luck Tim

Antifeeze leak on my 2000 VW Beetle Turbo


Most likely a leaky gasket. The water pump is a likely candidate, but also could be from a bad radiator hose/thermostat connection. Would suggest washing down the engine with a hose connected to the hot water. While the engine is cold use the hose to wash off the oil & grease deposits and old antifreeze. Allow the engine to dry without running the car. Once dry start the car and be prepared to look for the first sign of a leak. Sounds like a dealer issue since there is very little work clearence between the front of the engine and the car body. Barely enough room to be able to change the serpentine belt.

My 1999 VW Beetle losses antifreeze.


You will need to look all over the engine with a good light. If it is leaking somewhere, look for pinkish residue. Since your antifreeze is pink, it will leave behind this color. When you find it, that will be the source of your leak. It is probably small right now and evaporating before it hits the ground is why you don't see it.
