Are you sure that its not a freeze plug that has gone bad. check this video and it will give you a basic idea what freeze plugs are. this just happened to be on the side of the engine. if that is what your leak is from then google freeze plug replacement and you will get a ton of info.
never heard of what you are describing.

Flashing red light mean


A flashing red temperature indicator means your fluid level is low. The 99 beetle takes VW-specific antifreeze; do NOT buy standard green antifreeze for it! Fluid should be added to the round overflow bottle located on the passenger side corner of the engine compartment. Fill the container to the MAX line indicated on the bottle. I use Pentosin Pentofrost SF in mine, available at O'Reilly Auto Parts. As with most antifreeze products, mix it 1:1 with water before adding.

Cars do not normally "use" antifreeze, so if you keep having to add antifreeze, you should check for leaks. Heater hoses or radiator hoses are the most common places for leaks to occur, but the plastic thermostat housing is susceptible to cracking, so check that as well. Otherwise, you could be looking at a leaking radiator or heater core. Worst case scenario would be a leaking head gasket allowing fluid to escape into the cylinders, but that should be suspected only after everything else has been checked. The only other place you would ever see a fluid leak would be a bad freeze plug on the block, but those are very uncommon.

I have water coming in on driver side. It sometimes pours out the screw that holds sun visor and also were roof meets the side panel in front of door. I have a 2005 Mercury Montego. Where would water be...


Hi,
Looks like your sunroof drainage hoses are blocked, due to dirt and dust.
On that sunroof corners have these drain holes, water passes thru those holes and a hose attach to it. It will lead the rain/water to the side and to the bottom of the window/windshield pillar.
Those drain holes are already blocked that's why its over filling that area with water.
Get a flexible bicycle cable and insert it to those holes and pour a little amount of water w/ laundry soap, until the water flows out.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

My car is leaking antifreeze and overheating


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN CAR IS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATOR HOSES AND AROUND THE RADIATOR ON THE SIDES AND FRONT AREA WHERE COOLANT FAN IS.BUT BE CAREFUL DONT PUT HAND NO WHERE AROUND COOLING FAN.BECAUSE IT COULD COME ON WHILE YOUR HAND IS NEAR YOU CAN GET INJURED.ALSO CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP GASKET AND WEEP HOLE FOR LEAKING.IF YOU FIND NO LEAKS THEN YOUR HEAD GASKET LEAKING.CHECK ENGINE OIL IF OIL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE HEAD GASKET LEAK.

Rubbing/grinding noise


Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly
