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...

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 do i replace a oil pan on this car

First, drain the oil.

You will need to get an engine hoist and lift the engine about a half foot up. This will require unhooking at least one motor mount that is closest to the oil pan.

Once the engine is lifted, you can unbolt the oil pan and remove/replace it.

Do be mindful of what sort of sockets you need as some Passats require special hex bolts tools or other odd tools.

Trouble after oil change 1999 volkswagen passat

they couldn't even try to put trans fluid back in it,because that has to be done from the bottom of the car with a pump through a standpipe mounted in pan and can only be done when trans is at a set temp. they most likely pulled the wrong drain plug and wont admit it but don't know how to put it back in either. might want to find a better oil change place
