Question about 1992 Volkswagen Jetta
Ur water pump is leaking, and its very hard to replace. If u look just below the alternator u'll notice a bracket. That bracket is about 7 or 8 inches long. It's actually the water pump. Loosen the alternator adjustment, remove the belt, remove alternator and then u shall see the water pump. There are 4 bolts (maybe 6, can't remember) and the top two are really hard to get to. Need a socket (about 12mm) that can pivot in all directions. In any case, i doubt u should attempt this.
Ur car will need roughly 7 litres, so 1 gallon pure anti freeze and slightly less than a gallon of water.
Another problem u may have is a blown head gasket with an external leaks. Not all leaks from blwon haed gaskets leak into the cylinders.
Obviously check where ur leak is coming from before removing parts. Could be radiator, hoses or the coolant bowl itself.
If ur car is smoking white from hte exhaust, then u know it's a head gasket,
Lemme know where ur leak is comin from for more accurate sloutions.

It should hold a gallon and then add water to top it up
