I have a 2002 Volkswagon Passat. The stop check coolant light went on and the temperature gauge ran hot. I was told I needed a new fan clutch and temperature gauge. The radiator was bled for 2 hours as there was sludge and supposedly the wrong coolant put in previously. Car engine light also came on and car was smoking. After all this, car continues to run hot and overheat. I was told I need the radiator replaced. Does this sound right?

My Toyota Cressida needs a top up of Coolant. What type of coolant do I need. It is a Toyota Cressida Grande 1990


Best stuff to use in my opinion, is Prestone All-Makes. It can safely be added to any colour of coolant (tho I still do not recommend mixing it with Dex-Cool, allthough it says it is fine). You don't have to worry tho yours will not be Dex-Cool as th ... 1990 Toyota Cressida

I have a VW passat 2.0 petrol which gave a warning sign 'stop check coolant level and then got overheated. 1 day befor, I noticed some oil under the engine. I took it to a garage and was told that the head gasket needs changing. Paid £600 for it but after about 100 miles the problem recurred. Now mechanic says the oil coolant block needs changing as likely leaking. I am not sure if it will still sort the problem. Any suggestions

I have a 1995 Passat Wagon, about a week ago it started leaking coolant. I can't see exactly where, it is in the front of the engine, and very low. Yesterday I took it for a test drive and the coolant drained out completely on me. I needed to get it in my driveway so I put some stop leak in the overflow container, and some coolant, I ran it for about 1/2 hour in my driveway and it would leak intermittently. As soon as I shut the engine off, the coolant all drained out. Any ideas where the l

Our 2003 Passat had a check engine light, and it turned out the coolant level was low. We brought it in to the dealership to check for a leak, and they couldn't find a coolant leak anywhere, even though the coolant level was below min. They did, however, find that the water pump wasn't functioning properly and needed to be replaced, along with the thermostat. Before we drop the $750, I'm wondering if we should get a second opinion...any info would help.


The answer is a definite yes to the second opinion. I don't know how they mean when they say the pump is not functioning properly. It may be leaking out of the waterpump seal in which case you have an explanation for your water leak. That would be a ... 2003 Volkswagen Passat

The engine light is comming on. Took it to Autozone - giving a code "P0126 - Coolant thermostat condition; Low operating temprature, Probable cause - Low coolant level; Open or short circuit condition; or Faulty ECT Sensor". I can see an extremely corroded sensor on the side of the engine block, but I was told by the dealer that there are 2 temprature sensors. I need to determine which one to replace. All I can find on line and at all the parts stores is 1 type of sensor. Are there 2 coolant tem


The "probable cause" is the "thermostat" is stuck open, not allowing the engine to reach operating temp (190-195f) . As for the sensors, obviously its working, but if its corroded, its leaking and needs to be replaced. Better hope the pl ... 2004 Mazda MPV

I need to know what the part is called and how to fix it. The part is leaking hot coolant fluid, it is a ''y'' shape tubing that feels like hard plastic, black in color. It runs on the left side to the back by the firewall. The tubing lies on top of each other after a few inches after ''y'' area. It has some type of clamps holding it together. The leak is in the top half of the ''y'' area. It shoots out a sizeable stream of hot coolant. Can you please help me?
