Asked by Kimmijane Jun 18, 2019 at 10:20 AM about the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 04 Volkswagen Jetta I started seeing smoke come from underneath the hood immediately
pulled it over and check and see what the problem was and there was a little hole in the lower
radiator hose the temperature dial never went a little over the middle in my car so I didn't let it
get extremely hot so I replace that radiator hose and now my car won't start it was starting
before I replace the radiator hose what do you think could be the reason why it's not starting

There's no correlation between the two. When you replaced the hose, you might have knocked something loose, like an electrical connection to the cam or crank sensor. Or the engine got hotter than you were aware and the car has a heat related problem.
