Coolant leakage / starting problem

I Have a Volkswagen Jetta 2000 and i noticed that I have to add coolant twice a week. so I take a look if I could see some leakage underneath and Indeed I saw coolant on the machine block.
But I could not see from where the leakage is coming from.
Please help.

Another thing I experience is that when I start the car, I hear a sqeeking sound when the motor got started. Something like a belt is slipping.
Don't know what it is, but it bother me seriuosly.
Hope you can help me out.

Regards,
Johan

    Thanks Guys, your solutions where helpfull and because of that I figured out that that was not the case with my car, so I could go further on to search for the problem.

    The problem was a leaking Coolant flange, connecting the coolant hoses to the engine block.

    So I bought a new Flange and just replace it. It is this Flange on which the Temperature sender is connnected to, so i replaced the temp sender at once.

    The car is doing well since then.



    with regards

Look at the junction of the cylinder head and the engine block. If there is a leak beginning at that point you have a blown head gasket, a common problem when an engine has overheated. You may have to jack the car up, place jack stands underneath, take off the plastic shield under the engine and peer up at the back side of the engine with a flashlight. A mirror might allow you to peer at the rear side of the engine to look for a leak. A typical head gasket repair might cost $1200.00 to &1400.00.

2000 jetta 2.0 gas - 15-20 sec after starting car the water temp alarm goes off; 60 sec later turns off. car runs fine and temp gage reads normal. Any ideas?


Have you checked the coolant level in the overflow tank? Make sure it's to the proper level. The coolant warning system can lose its little brain on the VW's. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Temp light flashing after starting.outside temp.-17


Extreme cold weather is causing coolant to contract and fluid level is reading low level ... After starting with the engine warm the temp light should go off due to expansion of the coolant ... Solution: Add a small amount of coolant to compensate for cold weather contraction. Good luck!
