    2000 vt wagon
    I have a 2000 vt wagon it has been overheatingg lately and last night it started leaking heavilly from the front lower drivers side of the engine it doesnt seem to be a pipe or hose there is a bolt near where its leaking but hard to tell exactly where its coming from i took a video but dont think i can post it on here. I usually work in my cars myself but with a cast on my hand its a bit hard to do anything. Any help diagnosing this problem would be much appreciated cheers

    Put your video on youtube and link it here.
    Check the heater hoses, where they go into the engine.

    The OP said lower drivers side.

    In stating 'driver's side' and 'left' in the OP's post.
    Maybe he/she means left, looking at the car from the front.

    Check the vacuum operated heater assembly on the left side of the engine back, its plastic so it may have cracked, could also be hoses.
    Does water come into the cabin at all?
    If its the plastic unit in the engine bay then Super cheap sell them for the VT sedan from memory, but you need to check if its the same.
