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.
Hoope this can help you

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

Check your temp sensor, could be giving you the wrong reading.

I have an 03 vw passat 2.8 4 motion. It keeps overheating! I checked the core and nothing wrong. Changed the thermostat and it still over heats. Now I'm told it might be the water pump. Its fine when I'm...


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.

Sounds like it was not flushed properly and bleed of air pockets. Many engines have bleed screws to bleed all the air out when refilling.

Radiator overheating


If the overheating is only occasional, it sounds like the radiator still has some blockage that moves around and plugs up again. Try flushing it backwards again. If it continues, consider a new radiator. A radiator is cheaper than head gasket work, which may happen if it keeps overheating.
