I have a 2001 Jetta GLS automatic SOHC, and the engine overheated pretty bad. Inside the head, the cam cover was plastic and melted and went through all the coolant hoses.
I am replacing the whole coolant system. I was able to clean the head out and I think I can salvage it, but when looking at the block I noticed in the holes for the coolant there is goo and probably melted plastic in them.
I was wondering if there is a way to clean them out or is the block shot. There doesn't appear to have anything wrong with the pistons, just clogged coolant holes.
