Losing coolant

take it to a radiator shop and have the system pressure tested
if the pressure remains static at pressure start the engine and see if the pressure drops
if it does indicates a water pump seal when running
check the drain hole under the pump housing for stains and water marks
something the garage should have done

After running for 10 minutes or so, the car dies...acts like it not getting enough gas...let it cool down and it will run fine for onther 10 minutes or so...1987 volkswagon cabriolet ...any suggestions

This vw has two fuel pumps one low pressure pump in tank and one high pressure pump under car make sure both are getting power and both are pumping, next try switching out the coolant temp sensor for the computer. The old vw cis fuel injection systems are very complex, so if you don't know what it is don't touch it get a book or better on old vw mechanic! ; )

Change thermostat 2003 impala

Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The housing that contains the thermostat is where the hose attaches. Make sure the engine is cold because you will lose some coolant. Remove the radiator hose. Remove the two bolts that hold on the thermostat housing. Remove housing. Do not remove the thermostat until you have the new one ready to put in and put it in exactly in the same direction as the old one. If you don`t it will not work properly. Re-assemble everything taking care not to over tighten the housing bolts. Top up the coolant and start the engine. Observe the coolant level until the engine is at operating temperature and check your coolant level. Top again if needed.

Flashing coolant light when gas pedal engaged and out when idling. gauge shows 1/2. Added antifreeze. 1990 VW cabriolet. Other times it flickers.

You need to have this pressure tested to find a leak or diagnose a bad water pump or thermostat. Could also be a bad sensor or wiring harness.

98 2.8 v6 30v just started overheating, fan comes on, resevoir is full rad feels cold.

Your thermostat is probably bad (not opening). It will need to be replaced. Drain the radiator into a basin. Remove the thermostat housing. Replace the thermostat and gasket. Install the housing. Relace coolant, be sure to use proper coolant as Audi/VW requires.

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.
