Coolant tank boiling

if the engine is not overheating, and the coolant tank appears to be boiling, chances are you have a blown head gasket which is pumping air into the cooling system the only escape for that air is the coolant tank

My 2002 vw passat check coolant light is on. How do I add coolant and what coolant should I use?

There is a coolant reservoir on the driver side of the engine compartment. You just need to take the cap off and add coolant to the max lever when the car is cold. Never open it with the engine hot. Then you need to use the coolant type G12. You won't find it anywhere else but directly from the dealer. Its very important to use the this type of coolant so you dont damage any component of your cooling system. You're be paying about $17.50 per galon of G12 or price may be different depending of which state you're at.

Can the green antifreeze be used in a 2002Volkswagon Passat instead of red fluid. 1.8 liter engine

I wouldn't attempt that. Stick with the fluid that the manufacturer recommends many problems can occur if you put the wrong coolant into the system.

I have problems with the turbo of my Passat 2002 TDI Sometimes it stops working other times it works perfectly. What factors affect the turbo performance. Is the oil type, or coolant a factor?

The wastegate controls the operation of the turbo, it directs exhaust pressure to the turbo, If it does not function properly the turbo will act erratically

I have a 2002 vw passat. it has white smoke!!

Does the smoke occur all the time? If it is present just after start up and then goes away, it could be no problem at all. There is always some condensation in the exhaust at start up. It is more noticeable in cold weather.

However, if it is there constantly, and you are losing coolant, it could mean there is a headgasket problem. Watch your coolant level and watch your temperature gauge. If the coolant starts disappearing, and the car starts overheating, stop it immediately and get it to an auto repair shop. Driving a car with a bad headgasket can cause major engine damage.

I dont have heating in my passat gls 2002. any

do you have a 2.8 v-6. If so i hate to be the bearer of bad news but most likely it will be a clogged heater core. Take a look at you coolant bottle reservoir is the coolant a dark brown crusty color? If so that means that all the build up from the bad coolant has plugged your heater core to the point that it is not flowing anything thru it. That will be about a 1000 dollar repair. sorry for bad news
