Water overheating by water bottle

I drive a VW Golf 1 96 model. It is overheating and water is coming out the water bottle when my car is hot. My fan is coming on. I changed headgasket, water pipes, theormostate, water pump and it still does the same thing. I also bleeded the cooling system for air trapped in pipes and nothing. Why is my car still overheating causing the water to bubble out the water bottle

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: brake bleeding procedure on 2000 vw golf

get a one man bleeder kit from halfords (about £7) and then you can go around the car and bleed the brakes without a assistant, you just attach the tool to the nipple on the caliper, loosen the nut, press the brake pedel a few times till there is no more bubbles in the hose and then move on to the next corner, there is a specific way to go around the car but if you start at the back and finish at the front it should be ok

Does the fan turn freely in your hand? possibly a faulty thermostat on the radiator or the water pump isn't working (your car would probably be dead)

If you haven't replaced your water pump (composite impeller) to an aftermarket (metal impeller) then your heating problem lies in there. VW uses a plastic type impeller which cracks at the shaft connected to the pulley that drives it. When that happens, it might spin slower than engine speed or not at all. This will be a good time to do a timing belt service because it has to be removed out of the way in order to get to the water pump housing, so keep that in mind. Water pumps range from $69.95 - $89.95 from most VW internet shops that also offer free ground shipping.

Overheating Polo


this sounds like a thermostat fault, but also could be the sensor switch to the radiator but is more likely the thermostat, it should be located at the front top of engine, follow the top water hose to the engine and you will find the thermostat housing, also just a heads up, these had a problem when first made, according to the known fixes and problems with VW's the hoses corroded inside and started loosing water, this could be wise to get the system presure checked to...hope this helps

VW Golf 2.0 is overheating after replacing thermostat.


there is a strong possibility that the impellers on the waterpump are broken!!!!. they are made out of plastic and are notorious for breaking. ck this first have seen it countless times. make sure new waterpump has metal impellers.

Sounds like a bad thermostat. Its either stuck open or stuck closed. Get it replaced ASAP before you do damage to the engine.
