Did the electric fan on the radiator start up? if this dont start up, it can get the engine overheated , specily if the car run in hot weather , an when the car stay on idle . The other problem is the engine head , the head gasket can blow and you get the compresion presure in the water chanal .Try to se of the oil on engine is gray? If gray you must change head gasket.

I would check for compression gasses in the coolant system. It is most likely a head gasket issue.

The water pump is a possibility. It could also be a head gasket leak into the water jacket. At idle the pressure may not be enough to overheat the engine, but acceleration would cause rapid overheating.

it could be the thermostat. if the car stays at normal operating temp at idle and only gets hot when you drive it is the water pump. i just changed one that never overheated at idle even when it set for an hour or more. as soon as I tried to drive it I would get a mile down the road and it would be burning hot. took the water pump off and the impeller was spinning on the pump shaft.

Vw passat 03 overheats when ac is on in peak traffic/stationary


since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.

2004 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT V6 NO HEAT LAST YEAR HEAT WOULD BARELY GET WARM THIS YEAR I TURN ON HEAT AND GET NOTHING BUT AIR A/C CAR HAS CLIMATE CONTROL UNIT


Had this problem after replacing water pump. Hard system to bleed. small bleeders on heater hoses and one near the front of the engine.
VW vortex has a post on cooling system bleeding. check to see if both heater hoses are hot. if so check the climate control: push econ and mode at the same time. it will give you codes. The blend door can be checked for freedom of movement.
