There is a coolant flange on the side of the head that cracks and leaks on those. but to go through that much coolant in a day you should see puddles building up. make sure you are not mixing coolants on that i can cause a huge overheating issue. if you dont have vw coolant just use water until the leak is fixed

Im replacing water pump on a 2003 vw jetta gli vr6. I need a polygon socket to remove the water. I looked few places no one had it including the dealership. where can i find it??


The dealer has one (owned by the techs) but they are not going to let you use it. They are not in the tool rent business. Any repair shop that works on VW will have one. If you want one you will have to buy it from a tool dealer, find a Snap-on or MATCO dealer in your area.

Hello - I just bought a 2004 Jetta - day one - mil light came on. Car runs fine. What could it be? 2 mechanics checked the car over before I bought it and carfax said it was one owner no problems.


Have VW check it out. I had just got my 04 GLI with 70,000 miles when the light came on. The thermostat triggered the light and so I had the whole timing belt, thermostat, and water pump service. Worth the money.

If there is no oil leak from the steering rack,check the first power steering oil pump.But if the steering wheel doesn.t turn at all-change steering rack.

Clutch replacement instructions for 1986 VW Jetta


The release bearing goes in the back of the transmission. You'll need to remove the round "VW" cap on the end of the transmission. I would need to see the pilot bushing to know for sure. It could be the starter bushing or the clutch pushrod bushing.

2005 vw jetta gli overheating at above idle


Check to see if any of the hoses are kinked. Its also vary commen for new termostats to fail. If its not that then more then likely its the water pump.

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!

its either
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!
