You have to replace the tank on the radiator. The bad thing is alot of radiators come complete and it is getting harder to get just a tank. If you can find somewhere to get a tank, you need special tools to take the old one off and install the new one. Dollar for dollar, it is just as cheap to buy a new one and will probably last longer.

Thermostat location

Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. The hose connects onto the thermostat housing. When coolant is drained, and upper radiator hose pulled off the housing, the housing can be removed by pulling off the two retaining bolts and lifting housing off. Then you will see the thermostat in the engine block. Lift it out to replace. Clean the mating surface of housing to block, use a new gasket for the housing to block, put it all back together. Do not over tighten the housing to block bolts or it may leak there. run the bolts down evenly until finger tight, then take a socket wrench and give the bolts a couple of turns. Not too tight-you can always turn them a little tighter if it starts to leak there after you have filled up the coolant, started the engine and checked for leaks.
Fill the radiator and the overflow reservoir. Leave the radiator cap off and start the engine. Let it idle until the thermostat opens -upper hose will get warm-coolant level should drop a little in the radiator when thermostat opens. Add coolant as necessary into the radiator. When the engine has reached normal operating temperature, put the radiator cap on and tighten it down. Shut off the engine and check once more for leaks. This procedure will ensure that no air gets trapped in the coolant system. Trapped air can lead to overheating.
Good luck.

I cant find where the radiator cap is on my 97 jetta glx to refill the radiator the reservoir is full just need to fill the radiator but dont know where???

Your overflow cap is your radiator cap. What you may want to do is check the thermostat housing for a bleeder. Just in case the thermostat housing is where your upper radiator hose mets your engine. On top of it may be a bleeder valve. Let the car come up to normal temp and open the valve slightly until antifreeze comes out then tighten it up.

Replace thermostat

Two big hoses attach to your radiator. Look for the one that goes back to the TOP of the engine. There is a housing with two bolts in it that the hose connects to. Drain radiator, remove hose. Remove the two bolts. Remove the housing. Thermostat is inside housing or still on engine. It just pulls out. Remove any remaining thermostat housing gasket material from the housing and the engine. Install new thermostat. Should only fit in one way. Install new thermostat housing gasket and the housing. Reattach hose and fill radiator, leaving the cap off. Turn on the car and wait until car gets to warm condition. You will see the water start to move from the radiator to the engine when the new thermostat releases at the proper temperature. Replace the radiator cap and clean up, you are finished.

There is a 5/8 hose from water pump to thermostate housing called bypass hose. and you have two hoses from water pump and intake to the heater core. hope this helps if not let me know thanks
