The radiator warning light blinks red on startup, what kind of radiator fluid does the vehicle take? 2005 VW new beetle


VW have their own spec anti freeze/coolant, but any good quality upper market anti freeze can be used and some will even say that they are recommended by VW. Follow the directions on the container for mix and dilution.

    Change the radiator cap. The spring on yours is getting week. The reason it does it when you shut it off and doesnt do it when its running is cause the water pump sucks the coolant out of the radiator while it is pumping so there is not much pressure on it but when you shut car off the coolant stops curculating and egine heat is not transfered coolant exspands and pushes on the cap. If your spring in the cap is getting week then it pushes it up letting the coolant pass by to your overflow tank.

    Heater won't blow hot air


    have the heater core flushed. the heater core is a smaller radiator located in the air duct. open your hood, look at the firewall(wall closest to the seats) you should see two hoses a couple inches away from each other going to the radiator. unhook one, from the firewall connection, coolant will flow. then kink the hose so the coolant from the radiator doesnt drain. unhook the other hose from the firewall connection. now you have two pipes protruding from the firewall. get a hose and run it through one side and it'll come out the other. probably a lot of grime. now hook the hoses back up.
    it could also be the switch

    I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


    You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

    Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
    Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
    Radiator hoses
    Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
    Overflow reservoir cracked
    Radiator leak.

    Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.

    1999 VW beetle over heats...a LOT


    Sometimes, if the leak is small, when car is running and engine hot, you do not get dripping under the car because water is getting vapourized, before dripping down.

    Check water level, if water level is going down, then there is either another leak, or the head gasket is going.

    When head gasket starts to go , water is vapourized into the engine.

    If car overheated after the radiator problem, it is not uncommon that this may had damaged the head gasket, go back to the dealer and complain, as after replacing radiator, the car should had been inspected properly for additional problems.
