You put the coolant into the large plastic circular shaped reservoir with the large black plastic cap, near the firewall at the back of the engine, on the drivers side.

But it is very serious that you do not know where to put coolant, because that means it has never been checked.
Once it is over heated, then the thermostat also needs to be replaced.
You must also find out why it is low, since it should never be allowed to leak at all.
You need to perform a coolant system pressure check, with what is basically a pump that you replace the cap with.
You over pressurize it and watch for leaks that allow pressure to drop.
Then you start the engine, rev it up, and check for head gasket leaks that would cause pressure to oscillate.
The coolant light should never come on, and it is possibly very serious.

Vw jetta iv, temperature alarm sounds and flash with no aparent reason. temperature dial indiator is ok.


I WOULD CHECK BOTH RADIATOR HOSES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE HOT. THERMOSTAT COULD BE STICKING SLIGHTLY CLOSED.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL MAKE SURE COOLANT NOT LOW.IF COOLING NOT BOILING OUT OF THE EXPANSION TANK. I WOULD HAVE CAR HOOKED UP TO A DIAGNOTIC SCANNER AND CHECK COOLANT TEMPERATURE SEE IF TEMP. OVER 230 DEGREES IF SO RADIATOR COOLING FANS NOT WORKING.COOLANT THERMO SWITCH BAD BOTH FANS SHOULD BE RUNNING AT LOW SPEED.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY LOW COOLANT SENSOR IN EXPANSION TANK.MAKE SURE COOLANT IS IN THE EXPANSION TANK BECAUSE COOLANT LEVEL COULD BE LOW.ADD COOLANT IN THE EXPANSION TANK UNTIL YOU AT MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.DONT OVER FILL THE EXPANSION KEEP ADDING COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STAYS AT THE MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.
