1999 VW Beetle loosing coolant

Asked by Sep 20, 2014 at 07:48 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 99 Beetle is loosing coolant at a very rapid rate. I coolant puddled up on the
transmission.It appears to be coming from some type of housing that sits on top of the
transmission. The housing sits below what i believe is the thermostat. i am not sure what
it is but it has two hex screws that hold it to the transmission and has two coolant hoses
coming out of it.

It sounds like the housing has a crack in if or maybe just the gasket between the two.
