Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Please let me know if there are considerations when coolant is replaced
-do not under any circumstances just buy over-the-counter coolant
-the details are in your owners manual or directly from the local VW dealership
-yes, you will pay more...but read the following article....as it beautifully explains the vast variety of choices and consequences when doing this job
If you have any other questions...just ask!!
Please rate me...but please remember that anything other than a FIX-YA actually lowers my rating...especially 'helpful..as the system almost views it as an insult'
thanks for your consideration

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple
issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If
that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right
level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.
The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower
motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower
motor replacement to resolve the issue.
If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue
occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's
clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator
flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you
enough then it's better to have it replaced.
Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out
hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole
is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.
A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you
have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work
when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this
issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it
Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
