First buy the pre-diluted 50/50 coolant, no water and mesuring required. Looking directly in front of the engine, where your headlights are, you'll find your radiator. On top you'll see a metal cap with some warnings on it about not opening it when hot. so when your enging is cool carfully remove that cap and add 50/50 pre-diluted coolant( DO NOT ADD ANY WATER) until its right at the neck of the opening. Next slowly squeeze your top hose coming off the radiator and you should see one of two things, some bubbles or coolant spilling out. add more coolant to top off, close the cap on the radiator. Next find your Coolant resivour, you can find that by following the small hose coming of the neck of the radiator cap. and fill to the COLD line. Run your car at idle for 15 minutes, allow to cool for an hour and repeat entire process to properly top off.

I have to replace the water pump on a 1993 5 speed 2.0 L Jetta, what is the basic advice on that? remove belts? drain coolant? what else ? thanks a do it yur selfer !!


Yup. Drain coolant, remove belts and the upper timing belt cover. The easiest way is to remove the water pump and housing from the engine and do the rest on the bench. The thermostat and housing will come with it. Make sure you use a NEW gasket on the water pump and a NEW O-ring for the thermostat. Never reuse these parts. DON'T use silicone anywhere in there. When you put it back together the water pump should be torqued at 89 inch-pounds to the housing and the pulley bolts are 15 ft-lbs. The thermostat housing is also torqued at 89 inch-pounds. The thermostat is real easy on the bench, not so easy in the car (hint,hint).
It may be easier and faster to fill the block with coolant through the top rad hose and then top up at the bottle. Don't be surprised if it takes a few days to get all the air out of the system. Hope this helps.

If it was the water pump you should know very quickly. It would be very loose and woobly. It should be leeking out of the front of the block. Trying bringing it to a jiffy lube that does a high pressure antifreeze treatment. They will be able to free up any flow obsrtuctions or tell you if you need a new thermostat.

I have a 89 jetta gas. Im losing coolant somewhere and it overheats. But i cant find any leaks (except a little oil). Please help


Are you getting a lot of steam/condensation from the tail pipe? Is it more visible when the engine is hot? If so you need to have the coolant tested for signs of exhaust gases as it may be the head gasket has failed.
