Hello My name is Vanesa, My friends call me Nesa... I recently got a 99 VW Passat... But it needs a little work.... It's leaking coolant alot... and i have to check it on an everyday basis :(

I thought it might be the water pump... or a hose... not too sure...

Im not sure what to do... but i dont have thousands of dollars to spend either! :cry:


If someone could steer me in the right direction please i would be forever grateful:bowdown: ... I really like this car and it has GREAT potential...

Thanks a bunches!

$700 is about teh right price if it incl timing belt.
Even without it, ~$600 is aboutr right.
Oh and a leaky WP often signals it will soon fail, catistrophically, taking out the TB and severly damaging the engine
If you can find someone kind enough locally, they might be able to help you with a DIY for some beer.

Make sur ethey only use G12 fluid.
Honestly, if they say anything else will work, I'd move down the line.
