VOLKSWAGEN JETTA COOLANT PROBLEM

2000 Volkswagen Jetta • 15,678 miles

It started leaking antifreeze. It has not even been driven. What could it be?

What size engine? Gasoline or Diesel Engine?

Could be: - a broken plastic coolant flange or fitting
- a broken radiator
- a leak from the water pump
- a bad sensor o-ring
etc.

Take pictures of where you see the coolant (on the ground) and post them here. I can then give you a better "Guess".

Did you have enough coolant in it or was it mostly water?

Are you thinking frozen coolant caused a crack somewhere?

Got to fix the leak before addressing the mixture.

Yes, I am wondering if something is cracked.

HI, IF THERE IS NO LEAK ON THE OUTSIDE, CHECK THE FOOT REST AREA ON THE INSIDE, IF CARPETS ARE DAMP, THEN THE HEATER RADIATOR IS LEAKING.
