Hello, i recently purchased a 2001 passat 1.8t with the aug engine, the car has 160,000 miles on it. i do not know of the past history of the car. I was driving one day and the car starting beeping and overheating. I pulled over popped open the hood and the coolant reservoir was filled, but as i kept looking the coolant completely flushed out the reservoir from a hole on the bottom that looks like its suppose to be there. I refilled the reservoir with water so that i can make it home. I made it home without the car overheating. I did a flush of the coolant and put in new g12. I drove the car again and the coolant leaked out of this hole again but only when the car is stopped. The heater also does not work and now when i drive the car the coolant starts to boil and steam inside of the reservoir until i stop the car and it all leaks out of the whole. I also notice that when i started the car today the coolant tank was empty but i till started the car. As the car turned on, the tank become filled because the coolant reversed into it from the lower hose connecting to the radiator. I am not sure whats wrong but i cant drive the car now even with the heater on because it still overheats. Can someone help please and thanks.
