Been watching fairly substantial coolant leak from passenger side lower engine block on '98 Bug for a few days. Quit driving the bug for a month or so--and pretty much drained it dry while it sat. Been too hot to work on it in S. TX.

This a.m. I filled the dry reservoir with clear water and it immediatley emptied to radiator and began leaking basically clear water at corner bolt of oil pan near crankshaft.

Can't see any evidence of leaks from TB/WP area, but I suppose it may be hidden. I'm guessing a 'water runs downhill' leak without even starting the engine isn't a good thing.

Thanks for your advice!

Water pump or thermostat is my guess. Has the water pump ever been done?
