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.

Jetta TDI Coolant leak from behind tming belt.


hi from uk from the symptom/location you say water leak is coming from ? this is most likely to be the water pump that is leaking ? considering age/milage ? this is not uncommon however as the water pump is driven by cambelt this unfortunately means you will have to replace the cambelt and tensioner as well as the water pump it is policy never to use old belt/tensioner once disturbed for obvious reasons i'm sure you have heard stories of result of cambelt failure? and the serious damage caused to engine ? also if leak is serious? this will deteriate c/belt so advice you consider renewal asap cambeltkit +tensioner in uk casts approx under £45 and w/pump a little less you can obtain from most good motor factors/superstores avoid dealers this job is not too difficult diy with haynes or w/shop manual if you follow instructions and have tool kit hope this helps?

2000 JETTA OVERHEATING AT FIRST IT WAS LOSING WATER SO WE REPLACE THE HOUSING PIECE ITIS PLASTIC AND WAS CEACKED. nOW ITS JUST GETTING HOT NOT LOSING WATER


Your water pump impeller has probably come apart, you will have to do a timing belt job to get a new water pump in there. If you are not comfortable with that, take it to a shop. But yes, to check for water flow, pull the return line on the coolant bottle (little one on the top) and hold it so any water that would come out would go into the bottle, and start the engine (the engine has to be cold to try this test) there should be an almost immediate flow of water, if no water comes out, even if you give it a little gas, (should be a decent flow, not a trickle) than your water pump is in fact dead, very very common problem on 1.8 & 2.0 Jetta's, Beetles, and Passats.

1993 Dodge Dynasty water pump replacement


It depends upon their shop rate. You can check around for a reasonable rate & not pay $100. per hour. It will probably cost 2-300 depending on the shop and whether they go by the book per shop time. Don't be afraid to ask for a specific price in writing. Hope this helps you, Rick

Antifreeze leak


It could be the hose clamp if that's where is leaking from, but if the water pump has some miles on it, it could be time for a new water pump. Good luck

Most probably a leaking water pump. G12 radiator fluid is red, but so is automatic transmission fluid.
The water pump is driven by the belt near the air filter. Park ur car and let it run, look underneath ur car to see where it's leaking from.
Radiator fluid is slightly oily and has a sweet smell to it. Touch the fluid off the ground and smell it.

Is ur car automatic or manual? Which engine?? 1.8 or 2.0?

Get back to me so we can figure out ur next move.
