my 2004 Jetta is overheating, some water on the ground. When adding antifreeze it didn't take very much. It still overheated and sprayed a fluid in the back of the engine

2004 Jetta GLI overheating

2 Answers

Back of the engine eh? let me ask, does it get worse when you use the heater? Or intake manifold gasket..heater hose (that's why i asked that) freeze plug...and make sure if the engine is cold do NOT fill up the overflow, only about 1/4 full cold

That's interesting about the heater, my husband says it sprays from the back. He thinks something my be plugged. I have also noticed a small oil leak after it has been parked for the weekend. Last week when I went to start it to go home the light came on the check coolant , I had not even put it in gear. Thanks DavidH25
