What would cause coolant to pour out front when being filled.

Asked by Sep 24, 2013 at 04:12 PM about the 2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to drive my car and the coolant warning light came on. I looked and noticed
resoiver was empty and while fill it, I heard water running. It is in the front passenger side.  
Could that be a hose or does it sound like a water pump?

Sounds like a hose. But only way to know is to get under the car to see.
