1991 and 1997 VW Jetta Radiator??

I have a 1997 vw jetta glx that needs the radiator replaced. I have a 1991 that i can get really really cheap but im not sure about the size difference. I dont have the 1997 radiator since I bought the car without it in. I dont wanna buy it then find out it wont fit right. So if anyone knows the size differnce plesae let me know. Or if i could swap the 91 radiator along with everything to mount it if that ones smaller. Thanks

    Would it work as a temporary fix until i can get the proper one shipped? I'm assuming the 97 radiator is larger then? Ive been told the 2nd generation had a larger radiator.

Where exactly is the thermostat on a 88 jetta, i believe it is a 1.6L 16 valve.


VW family engine thermostat is behind the lower coolant inlet . It will be either a plastic or aluminum housing.

To find it...open engine lid and look down at bottom of radiator. You will see a rubber hose from the base of the radiator to the engine at the left side looking in. The hose is attached to the housing that holds in the thermostat.

FYI. Never run a VW engine without a thermostat in place or overheating will occur ....really !

HOW TO REPLACE A RADIATOR ON A 1999 VW JETTA


The procedure to replace radiator on 1999 VW Jetta is as follows:--- **Locate and remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator, and let the engine coolant drain into a resealable container. Then unplug the electrical connectors from the coolant fan and thermal switch.
**Then carefully detach the release lever holding the front bumper, and take off the radiator grille. Remove all bolts holding the front bumper and take off the bumper. Disconnect the temperature sensor connector and if necessary remove the spoiler.
**: Unhook the quick release couplings holding the coolant hoses to the radiator. Removing the screws securing the headlights and disconnect the headlights. If your Jetta is equipped with A/C, unfasten the A/C mounting bolts and the condenser bracket bolt on the left of the radiator.
**: Remove the radiator mounting bolts and slide the radiator and fan by sliding them downward. Don't disconnect any refrigerant lines, if your Jetta has an air conditioning unit.
**: Take the retaining clamps off the refrigerant lines and remove the bolts securing the refrigerant line from the side of the radiator. Be very careful that no hoses or lines are stretched or bent. Swing the radiator down and remove it from the vehicle.
**: Replace the radiator and replace and reconnect all engine and electrical components and the fender and bumper in the reverse order.
**: Then carefully fill the radiator with a mixture of half distilled water and half engine coolant. Start the vehicle and let it run for few minutes with the radiator cap off, in order to bleed air from the lines. Check the fluid level and top it off if necessary, then put on the radiator cap.
------Its done.

There are two coolant temp sensors. One by the oil filler tube and one near the bottom radiator hose near the radiator.
When you flushed the coolant did you replace with VW rated G12 coloant? Very Important! - You can't use over the counter coolant - it'll cause sludge in your system. You have to use G12...

Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.

2005 vw jetta radiator cooling fan wont shut off


Check for a switch at lower part of rad. Should see a wire harness & plug on a sensor at bottom of rad. This sensor/switch also operates fan on/off according to coolant temperature. You may need to disconnect battery to get at it safely.
