Why is the antifreeze leaking from your 2000 Volkswagen Beetle?
Your Beetle is 7 years old and the rubber hoses get old just like your serpentine belts. Cracking and stretching means it is time to replace your hoses. Your Antifreeze should be replaced every 100,000 miles and the water pump should be checked at the same time. Also your timing belt should be replaced around this time. The Anti freeze is only available from your dealer so do not mix your anti-freezes. This could cause severe cooling problems. Since you didn't say where your anti-freeze is leaking. I would check your oil for signs of water. Make sure your coolant reservoir is tightly sealed. Distilled water can be added to get you to a VW dealer but this will affect your cooling system if you add too much. Never open the radiator always add fluids to the reservoir only
Volkswagen antifreeze is made by Pentosin. Only use that kind. It is, unfortunately, really expensive--a 1.5-liter bottle is about $15. Compare that with Prestone you can get for around $11 a gallon. Fortunately for you, it lasts three years. There are four kinds of VW antifreeze: green, which is for really old watercooled VWs; blue, which is specification G11 and is for cars from about 1989 to 1996; red (or pink), which is specification G12…
Is it true that you cannot mix any antifreeze in a 2000 VW Beetle GLX 1.8 turbo except the VW antifreeze G12A8D that is only available from the dealer for 25 dollars?
I keep losing antifreeze no leaks to be found oil looks good and no sign of it leaking on the floor what next 2000 impala?
If it is not leaking externally then it is leaking internally. The intake manifold gaskets are known to leak coolant into the engine on that vehicle. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose the problem soon because coolant mixing with engine (even in small amounts) oil will cause big trouble down the road.
