Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 94 volkswagen golf, auto. The muffler is now hanging on one side while still bolted in from the other side. I also notice that the car sounds much louder than before. I started the car and looked underneath and noticed in the middle was leaking. It stopped leaking when I turned the engine off. I did notice a minor odor as well when I turned the engine on. I don't know what's wrong and how much to expect for repairs or replacements.

You need to shop around for a new muffler. Price is going to vary because of possible damage to brackets etc... and will require a visual inspection by shop.

Coolant leak in VW Golf mark 5 1.9 TDi auto DSG

There is, however, an air outlet into the driver's foot area. If the heater core is leaking, the air coming through the heater core will carry the droplets into the entire air ducting system. The driver's foot area may be the closest outlet. If it smells like coolant, you need to replace the heater core regardless of where in the cabin the coolant is coming out.
