Stevemy 99 vw jetta 2.0 the cat overheats and burn the oz sensor

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.

The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower motor replacement to resolve the issue.

If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you enough then it's better to have it replaced.

Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.

A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it when necessary.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Was told by vw dealership I need a cv boot on 2007 jetta or could result in much more expensive repair later. Was told by 2 other auto repair shops that I should replace entire axil because cost to...

The repair shops are correct in the fact of it being more costly to replace just the boot. It's not that urgent to replace the axle if the boot just ripped. If you do start hearing popping and clanking sounds while turning corners, then it's time to change that axle since it will start making noises when it's worn.

I was told by the dealership i needed to replace the ignition coil and spark plug wires because my 99 jetta vr6 was misfiring. I did that and now it wont start.

You must verify your work.

1. Test for spark. Make sure the coil is producing spark.
2. Did you remove the plug wires one at a time? If not then check to make sure the firing order is correct.

1999 vw passat overheating coolant boiling in resivoir when i loosen the cap it boils more and over flows out of the bottom of the resivior

Most likely you have a faulty Thermostat. If you know where the thermostat is a quick way to check it is to remove it and see if the problem continues. If not, buy a replacement thermostat and install it and your done. If the problem continues then you have a bigger problem that need a mechanic for diagnoses. The thermostat is usually located on the upper Radiator line where it connects to the motor.

To the best of my knowledge, camry radiators are not made of plastic, they're made from copper tubing.

If the raditioar is in fairly good shape, have it soldered.

Coolant overflows

Do your radiator fans run? If not, you will overflow everytime. But to answer your question specifically, yes the hoses can and do collapse. At 13 years old, it would be a good place to start. And no, the coolant isn't a factor.
