Coolant Leak

Asked by Jan 01, 2017 at 01:27 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi hope you guys can help me but I have a
2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS and
apparently it has been leaking coolant. The
thing is I don't know where it's leaking
from. I add coolant every 2 weeks and I'm
scared that some day I'm going to
overheat the engine and I don't want that.
So I've tried my best to find where it's
leaking and I can't find it. Every time i
check on the ground to see if I can see it
on the ground and I can't find a single drop
of coolant in the ground. I'm not an expert
on cars so I would really appreciate if you
guys could help me out so I could at least
have an idea on what's wrong with my car.
Thank you

Sounds as if your head gasket is blown and the antifreeze is going in the cylinders, are you blowing any white smoke from your tail pipe.
