2000 VW Beetle over-heats

My wife recently bought a used 200 VW Beetle. Every other day we have to check the radiator because it seems to over-heat? I am not familiar with this car, and since it has a Turbo, I worry about the engine getting too hot, any help would be appreciated.

What do you mean "check the radiator"? Does the radiator not work or only work every other day? You could have a clog in the cooling system and it might be smart to get it flushed out.

Check radiator fluid, make sure the engine fan engages, if both of these are fine, make sure your engine is not running too lean, as it will cause additional unnecessary heat.

Check the oil level to make sure you have sufficient oil in the crankcase, and that it's not burnt. Also check the level of the antifreeze/coolant in the cooling system. Low levels can cause the car to shut down. Alway look at the cheaper easy to solve problems, then move to the more complicated.

that will the next thing.
make sure the water is restricted at any point, from the lower hose to the engine back to the upper hose and back to the radiator.
the best way to check that out is to flash the radiator. you can see the water change color and feel the engine temperture.

My car over heats, but i get no warning lights on my dash. i have coolent and oil, but i still over heat.


Hi,

If there are no dashboard/warning indicators in an overheating situation, then the coolant thermal sensor is faulty and needs replacement.

A few things you can try to reduce overheating:
  • remove altogether the thermostat (not applicable in cold weather);
  • hotwire the radiator fan to be always on when engine is running;
  • check the: radiator hoses, radiator, water pump.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
