Engine Cooling problem
1985 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 100000 miles
I have a 1985 VW Jetta Diesel. The thermostat and the radiator fan sensor both failed at the same time. The car got hot. I took it to a mechanic and we removed the thermostat. It still gets hot and water boils out of the water reservoir. He said it must have a cracked head or head gasket problem. He added block seal and this worked for a few hours. But now it boils out again. I need to know step by step how to remove the head to check the gasket. Or any advise you feel is necessary. Can you help? Thanks.
