Hi, i have automatic passat 1999 model and recently water happens to get into the gear box and it control board, i experiences a boom sound anytime the gear is changed, the oil has been changed by the...

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

Anything special i need to know when changing my anti-freeze. this is my first time, trying to save money. someone said something about getting the air out? what does that mean?

drain the coolant, connect or close all hoses and drain plugs,start motor and fill radiator with a 50/50 mix of water and anti-freeze, leave engine running,when motor gets hot the thermostat will open allowing the coolant to flow through the motor, in change the anti-freeze will get lower in the radiator thus you continue to fill untill full and the radiator will not except more coolant, ( this is how you get the air out) replace radiator cap and fill reservoir to cold level and your done. Recheck your coolant reservoir after you have driven the vehicle a bit and fill if necessary, do not fill to top, only fill to cool mark. the reservoir is not under pressure so you can fill at any time motor hot or cold

My mutsuibish shogun 1994 v6 keeps overheating and building up so much pressure that it keeps spliting the radiator hoses???????? PLEASE HELP

ur car is overheating because it does not have the capacity to dissipate high coolant temperature from ur engine to ur radiator or heat exchanger/ check auxilliary fan operation/ if electrically operated check fuse or motor condition/ if no motor check fans silicone oil/ could be too less/ check radiator condition it coul be blocked that why it restrict coolant flow/ check thermostatic valve condition could be stuck up and restrict coolant flow to the radiator...check coolant reservoir if water has oil in it/ if it has oil in it then ur engine cylinder head gasket is broken....

Overheating and change engine oil ... oil was changed one week ?

it seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.
--than there are chances of chocking in the coolant pipes, may be they not reached to engine..  
--Check the chock,, that it is not turned on. 
--May be sum loosing nut in engine.
