Having problems with your Volkswagen Jetta ?
I have an 89 jetta where do I put the coolant and how much water with that
First buy the pre-diluted 50/50 coolant, no water and mesuring required. Looking directly in front of the engine, where your headlights are, you'll find your radiator. On top you'll see a metal cap with some warnings on it about not opening it when hot. so when your enging is cool carfully remove that cap and add 50/50 pre-diluted coolant( DO NOT ADD ANY WATER) until its right at the neck of the opening. Next slowly squeeze your top hose coming off the radiator and you should see one of two things, some bubbles or coolant spilling out. add more coolant to top off, close the cap on the radiator. Next find your Coolant resivour, you can find that by following the small hose coming of the neck of the radiator cap. and fill to the COLD line. Run your car at idle for 15 minutes, allow to cool for an hour and repeat entire process to properly top off.
