Drain Plug


Risk Warning

There are a few risks associated with driving a Volkswagen car with a Drain Plug problem. The first is that the car will not be able to be properly cooled as the engine is designed to do. This can cause the engine to become overheated quickly and potentially lead to engine failure. Additionally, the extra pressure being placed on the engine can damage internal components and cause a loss of power. Finally, without the Drain Plug functioning correctly, engine oil and other vital fluids can leak, resulting in a loss of lubrication and further engine damage.
