Question about 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio
So I am having major problems with my 2000 vw cabrio.
It was making a pretty loud metal on metal thudding noise for about a day, which suddenly stopped yesterday. Then, as I was driving to work, it came back much louder.
I live about 30 minutes from work, and on my way home last night (at 2am) I had to stop 4 times to buy coolant to put in, wait for the engine to cool down (it was dangerously high on the overheating scale) and then continue to drive.
Each time, i barely made it to the gas station. It was at this time that the coolant was pretty much just pouring straight through the car.
Also, my power steering went out on the way home, which seemed to make the engine hotter every time I had to make a turn.
WTF is going on here? And should I try to drive it to the mechanic 20 mins away? I am a bartender/student and extremely low on funds. My car has about 149,000 miles and I need it to give me about another, well, any thing would be nice
Any thoughts? THANK YOU!
Either you threw a belt or the water pump isnt not circulating. You can drive to the shop. Just becareful. When you see it getting hot shut er down and let er cool. If you get it too hot you could cook the motor.
