Q: Overheating and leaking of water

asked by on

I have the problem with my VW Polo 2003. It is overheating and there is a leaking on the hose that transport the water, and it finishes the water very quickly.

My car has 137670 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. Since it is not clear which problem came first - leaking hose or overheating. You may need to replace the hose, refill the coolant, and bleed the cooling system. But first, a diagnosis of a possible overheating problem can provide clear answers. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home or office to confirm a diagnosis on the issue and make or suggest the necessary repairs or replacements.
