Download manual 2013 Volkswagen Jetta GLIManual Description
In this section you'll find information about, warning light and engine coolant temperature gauge , checking engine coolant level topping off , never do any work on the coolant system unless you.
Know exactly how to carry out job, have the correct technical information and the proper tools, supplies, operating fluids, are familiar with the necessary safety precautions ⇒ , serious personal injury may result improperly performed work.
Preparations for working engine compartment, always keep the coolant in its original container stored safe place, to reduce the risk of poisoning, never store engine coolant in empty food beverage, containers or in any other containers that might mislead someone into drinking them.
Always keep engine coolant out reach children, always make sure there is enough of the correct coolant additive provide proper, antifreeze protection at the coldest temperatures that can be expected where vehicle will, at extremely cold temperatures, the coolant could freeze, causing vehicle break.
Coolant and coolant additives can pollute the environment, dispose of them properly in accordance with applicable environmental laws regulations, warning light and engine coolant temperature gauge, Please first read and note the introductory information heed WARNINGS.
Under normal driving conditions, the needle should be in the middle of gauge, may go higher when the engine is working hard, especially hot weather, when the ignition is switched on, several warning and indicator lights come on briefly function, the following table explains what to do if the engine coolant warning light ¿ does not go out few.
Seconds after the engine is started or if it starts flashing while driving, pull off the road and stop soon you, cool down until the temperature needle, coolant level and add coolant needed.
If the engine coolant level correct, problem continues after adding coolant, driving a short distance, do not drive any, if the coolant level correct.
Overheating may be caused by radiator, check the engine coolant level after, engine has cooled down add engine, problem continues after adding coolant, do.
These instructions apply only when, into the red warning zone (C), do not drive at high engine speeds with, heavy engine loads until engine warms.
Failure to heed warning lights and instrument cluster text messages can cause vehicle, break down in traffic and result in a collision serious personal injury, never ignore warning lights text WARNINGS, always stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe do so.
Failure to heed warning lights or text WARNINGS can result vehicle damage, the engine cooling system is filled at the factory with a mixture of specially conditioned water, least percent of Volkswagen engine coolant additive G 13 (TL-VW 774 J), this mixture provides antifreeze protection down to -13 °F (-25 °C).
Alloy parts in the engine cooling system against corrosion, calcium deposits and increases the boiling point engine coolant, to protect the engine, the mixture must always contain at least 40% coolant additive even warm, weather or climates where antifreeze protection not needed.
If more antifreeze protection is needed for climate conditions, the percentage coolant additive can, antifreeze protection is reduced and the ability of the mixture to cool the engine also reduced, when adding engine coolant, use a mixture of distilled water and at least 40% coolant additive G 13.
