1996 Volkswagen Golf ProblemsEngine Overheating Due to Damaged Water Pump Impeller
The engine may develop an overheating condition due to a damaged water pump impeller. Our technicians tell us the repair should include replacement of the water pump, thermostat, and flushing the cooling system.
A coolant leak may develop after oil filter replacement. When tightening or loosening the oil filter the filter housing may turn damaging the coolant o-ring seal. The recommended procedure is to hold the filter housing when tightening or loosening the oil filter.
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.
