Why does my jetta a/c work the not work


Happy New Year. My name is Phil. My heater for my VW Jetta 1999 2.0 automatic doesn't work. The blower works but not hot air. Blows dirt and part of foam. Did I need a new heater? Or is there something else wrong? Also a clagging sound when I turn the car on but once the car is warmed up the clagging sound stops. The car runs good but worry about the clagging sound. Thanks.

I dont think that you are installing the proper pump, you should really try using a new or remands water pump for a diesel, as the bolt patterns maybe different.

My 93 chevy g20 van heater doesn't work very well. It has the hottest running thermostat available.


you want to get a thermostat that has a low temp release. when u have a hightemp release it does not open til it reaches a hot temp. when you put the low temp in it releases earlier and warms the heater core up as the engine warms up.
