    Hi there, have you got this problem fixed only i have a similar problem on my 2002 golf ? My temperature gauge used to go up to half way and stay there, the engine used to judder a bit when getting 1/4 warm but went away until it got up to the middle point. now the temperature gauge is all over the place and it mostly shows it to be on cold all the time and judders a lot of time (but nothing so bad you can really notice it). 

    if you have any advice feel welcome to please email at

There should be a vac controlled valve on the heater hose near the firewall. If that valve fails, or something happens to the vac source, the valve will not open or close. I would check that valve and make sure it is working. Both heater hoses should be hot when the engine is warmed up.
