My 2004 Passat has a water leak behind the engine. Does the upper radiator hose go over the engine and then down behind the engine.? I can't see back there. Does anyone know what it could be?


In back of the head theres is a plastic housing which holds the coolant temperature sensor and a few hoses. this platic housing is know for leaking. hope this helps good luck.

Need to know where the thermostadt is at. Have leakage but can't find any hoses etc leaking.


If you have the V6 (2.5L) engine, be advised: it's a wearing task. Just getting to the radiator drain plug can be a problem without a 3/8 inch drive ratchet, a 3 inch extension, a universal joint. and a 19 mm socket. The drain plug is on the passenger side of the radiator on the engine side. The 19mm socket will fit over the drain plug to turn it open.
The coolant plumbing on this engine is the craziest I have ever seen. The thermostat is on the rear face of the engine (where the radiator hoses connect), but not on the upper hose where it connects to the upright pipe with the radiator cap on it, it is on the lower hose connection. Pull that hose off the housing, and remove the three bolts holding the thermostat housing to the engine. It will help if you first remove the big air inlet hose from the air filter housing to the throttle body. I wouldn't even bother with the thermostat till you have found the leak. Is any coolant leaking from the front of the engine, dripping off the bottom behind the crank pulley? That would be a water pump problem or SEAL, an o-ring on the back of the water pump. Now get on the driver's side and look around on the rear of engine nearest the firewall where engine and transaxle mate. Look down there for signs of coolant coming from rear of engine and running down onto the transaxle case. There is a metal pipe laying in the valley below the lower intake manifold, connecting the water pump at the front and the rear housing where the radiator hoses and heater hoses connect. This metal pipe uses an o-ring for a seal into the water pump, and the same size o-ring to connect to the rear housing. If one of those o-rings is leaking, you have a big problem getting to it.. I took the rear housing off once (never again!), Now I'm taking the water pump off to fix a leak. The water pump is run by the timing belt, so the front of engine needs to be stripped down, and the timing belt removed to take off the water pump. That metal pipe is held in place by a bracket with one bolt on the rear of engine; it may require taking the lower intake off (again) to get to both of those pesky o-rings. I hope you don't have the same problem, and if you have the 4 cylinder engine, the thermostat is a snap to replace, plus you don't have that crazy plumbing problem.

I can't get the thermostat housing off the engine to replace the thermostat. i've removed the bolts, upper radiator clamp and hose from the elbow going to the housing and it is loose, but it wo'n tcome off...


The thermostat is not under the upper housing. The thermostat is behind the lower housing that the lower hose is connected to.

If you are changing the upper housing known as the water outlet housing because it is leaking you are on the right track. You will need to remove the intake plenum on top of the engine and the upper radiator support. You will then be able to access the bolt on the backside of the engine that bolts the pipe retainer in place and disconnect the hose from the pip. The upper radiator support needs to be removed in order fro there to be enough clearance to pull the whole assembly out.

Nissan Car 350Z & Maxima 1999-06 Radiator - Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    Negative battery cable Coolant reservoir tank and bracket Upper mounting bracket Upper radiator hose Oil cooler lines, if equipped Lower radiator hose Cooling fan and condenser fan Fan motors and shields Radiator

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    Radiator Fan motors and shields Cooling and condenser fans and torque the bolts to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm) Lower radiator hose Oil cooler lines, if equipped Upper radiator hose Upper mounting bracket Coolant reservoir tank and bracket and torque the bolt to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm) Negative battery cable
  2. Fill the cooling system to the proper level.
  3. Start the vehicle, check for leaks and repair if necessary.
WARNING Do not remove radiator cap when engine is hot. Serious burns could occur from high-pressure engine coolant escaping from radiator. Wrap a thick cloth around the cap. Slowly turn it a quarter of a turn to release built-up pressure. Carefully remove radiator cap by turning it all the way.

  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    CAUTION Do not damage or scratch the A/C condenser and radiator core while removing.
    CAUTION Because A/C condenser is onto the front-lower portion of radiator, moving to rear direction should be at minimum.
    Negative battery cable Engine cover Air duct and air cleaner case assembly Bracket mounting bolt for anchoring A/C piping Reservoir tank and bracket Upper and lower radiator hoses Radiator cooling fan assembly On A/T models, A/T fluid cooler hoses. Plug hoses to avoid leakage Cover, then two A/C condensing mounting bolts located in the upper part of the radiator Rotate two radiator upper mount brackets 90 degrees in the direction shown in the illustration and remove fce8147.jpg

  4. Remove the radiator by performing the following:
    CAUTION Lifting A/C condenser should be minimum to prevent a load to A/C piping.
    With lifting and pulling radiator in a rear direction, disassemble lower mount from radiator core support center. Lift A/C condenser up and remove radiator after disengaging the fitting as front-bottom surface After removing radiator, put A/C condenser on radiator core support center to prevent a load to A/C piping, and temporarily fix it with rope or similar means

To install:
  1. To install, reverse removal procedure.
  2. Check radiator cap for any leaks.
  3. Start and warm up engine. Check for engine coolant leaks and A/T fluid leaks.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

Where is the thermostate located


The thermostat will be located either at the upper radiator hose inlet to the engine, or it will be located at the lower radiator hose inlet to the engine.

Remember that the spring end of the thermostat should always go towards the engine, and not towards the hose.

Also with a lower mounted thermostat, when it comes time to add coolant you should dis-connect the upper radiator hose at the radiator and fill the engine through the radiator hose, if you do not then there will be very little coolant in the engine block until the thermostat opens up, and by then your engine could be toast.
