Question about 1986 Volkswagen Golf
I bought this car because my Saab was totaled due to a rearending. I did a full tune up on the car with all the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter... so it runs great. I changed the thermostat because i though it would help the heater blow hotter and because it took a long time to heat up. Since i changed the thermostat the temp will constantly sit at just before overheating. Still no heat in the car. Changed the thermostat again. got a hose leak, besides the point... still runs hot. Put a Volkswagen thermostat in. Fixed leak. Installed new resevior cap. Still runs too hot! Water pump is clearly circulating the fluid when the cap is off, i see it squirting in there. radiator fan turns on every now and then, but the guage is still too hot. I dont know what to try now... Any ideas guys? Thanks!
Try changing cooland temp sender,your heater matrix maybe blocked(common)what temp is it running at have you checked it with a gauge?
