Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Posted by Anonymous on
This sounds like a classic case of blown head gasket.
You seem to know some about cars, however I will attempt to give you my best answer.
You have a gasket that seals the engine to the head, when you over heat this gasket gets punished and in some cases the head can get warped and the seal between the engine and head is lost resulting in your loss of compression.
You need to remove the head for a better look, take the head to a machine shop and have them check it for warped condition, if so see if it can be machined flat, also look into a rebuilt head, it may just be cheaper to do that then the work to fix your original.
As well your going to have to find the reason the car over heated in the first place..
This might be a good time to see if the car is worth fixing?!
