SOURCE: My 2002 vw passat check

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.

SOURCE: i need to bleed the coolant of a vw passat 2002

Usually there is a plug on the upper radiator hose. If you pull the horseshoe clip and remove the plug you can let the air bleed out of the system

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.

The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.

Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.

You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.

The head gasket is another story.

Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.

Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.

Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.

If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.

If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve

If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.

Where is the heater core on a 2002 passat


It's behind the center of the dashboard. You will need to remove the dash board to access the core. Just follow where the coolant hoses go through the firewall, that eill tell you where it is. Sorry no shortcut for the dash removal, only way to remove it is removing the dash.

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.

Temperature light came on 2002 VW Passat wagon backing out of garage today, slight burning smell. Returned after 2 miles. Have experienced this smell on and off since oil & filter change several weeks...


You can see the coolant level by looking through the opaque round coolant reservoir. It should be just over the middle. There's a line indication proper level. Orange Dexcool meets the VW specification and is generally available. The rear coolant flange can warp and seep over time and leaks onto hot parts. That's probably why you smell it.

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 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
