Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
Hose junction box pressure test cooling system and buy the offending part
Posted on Oct 21, 2009
If you are standing in front of the car and the box you are referring to is on the right side of the motor below the intake, that that would be a plastic falange that feeds coolant into the motor, which also houses the engine coolant sensors. If this is not the "box" you are referring to; would it be possible for you to post a pic. Your whole cooling system can begin to leak if you don't use VW coolant. The plastic tubing on VW engines requires the oil based coolant that VW uses, otherwise the insides of the tubes begin to wear out.

you need to fix this problem before you overheat the engine. That box u see is the coolant tank and the hoses go to the radiator and to the engine fine out wats leaking the hoses or the tank u may need to replace one or all the hoses but if u need to replace the coolant tank replace all 4 hoses some times the hoses get dameged as they are removed from the tank.
