Having problems with your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta ?

Thing is is it DOESNT OVERHEAT ONLY STEAMS OUT guage never goes above normal but water steams out of reserve and thatss that. only takes not rvrn a mile. replaced water pump and thermostat
Not to scare you but it could be something as bad as a cracked head or head gasket allowing combustion gases to enter the cooling system. The best way to tell is with a combustion gas leak detector. They look like a dual chamber turkey baster with a colored fluid in one chamber. You remove the radiator cap and fit the rubber cork-like portion of the tester into the neck of the radiatior and take a sample of the air in the radiator. The fluid in the tester will change color by a chemical reaction if there are combustion gases in the cooling system.
