Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta
I just bought this car and I am going though coolant in a day. What do you think the problem is? I've owned VW's my whole life and never have run into this. It has 53000 on it.
Leak in the actual system, try running the car as it warms up and look underneath it too see if any water leaks out. Some water will seem to disappear if the radiator cap is worn out also.
It has to go somewhere!
1) physically leaking out
2) leaking out through overflow/radiator cap
3) going through the engine (unlikely if its going through a lot quickly) check your exhaust to see if steam keeps coming out when warmed up (steam can come out on cold says and be normal)
remember as the car warms the pressure will rise, so the leak might not show up for a while and DONT open the radiator cap when the engine is hot!
