1999 VW Beetle loosing coolant

Asked by res133cue Sep 20, 2014 at 07:48 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 99 Beetle is loosing coolant at a very rapid rate. I coolant puddled up on the
transmission.It appears to be coming from some type of housing that sits on top of the
transmission. The housing sits below what i believe is the thermostat. i am not sure what
it is but it has two hex screws that hold it to the transmission and has two coolant hoses
coming out of it.

1 Answer


It sounds like the housing has a crack in if or maybe just the gasket between the two.
