I own a 2001.5 VW Passat. In May, I had the oil pump replaced and it was running fine. I also had a coolant leak but I kept the car with coolant so that it would continue to run fine and it did. Recently, I had to take the car to a body shop to get some work done. They ended up draining my battery dry and did not check my levels of coolant after i told them that it was draining. As a result my car overheated on my way home. I had my car towed back to my mechanic and he was able to replace t
