    (For some reason I am not authorized to post in the "Classified" forum so here it is...) I have gotten rid of my friendly Passat. I'm going through a bit of grief. But anyway, I have about 1/2 gallon of G12 and 1/2 pint of power steering fluid I won't be needing anymore. If anyone wants to...

    I am selling my 01 Passat and need to change out the oil cooler, flush the cooling system and saw somewhere (can't find it) that places like Wall Mart sell the G-12 coolant. Will any G-12 be ok to fill it up with or is there a specific kind. I don't want to spend the $$ on the high dollar stuff...

    Have a leak. Know where it is, (flange on back of head), but don't really have the time to work on it for a while. Are these safe to use in our G12 systems? And do they work? B5.5 1.8t

    I totally understand the need for proper fluids. Correct synthetic motor oil for the engine. Correct ATF for the auto tranny. Correct mineral steering pump fluid. But I don't understand the worship of G12 and G13 coolant. To me, it is the one fluid that maybe doesn't matter if you use something...

    I had a crack in my Coolant Reservoir resulting in a slow leak. I purchased a new resevoir and changed it and added (yes, should have checked here first, I KNOW) a universal coolant to the resevoir. Almost immediately after running the engine there was a significant leak at the water pump, to...

    My Mechanic is a longtime VW mechanic. He recently did the coolant flange and I noticed the coolant was green after he changed it. I asked if it was G12 and he said yes. Does G12 also come in green?

    When I got my timing belt kit it also came with g12 coolant, but seems like I need to add some. Do I need to strictly add g12 coolant or is it ok to add regular coolant?

    A buddy of mine called me up today, he has a 2003 V6. Said his low coolent light came on about a year ago. He topped it off with a generic all makes and models coolent. He did this a couple times through out the year and again yesterday. He says there is no visible leak and no puddle in the...
