Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
Was idleing with the heat on high and still the temp was going up on the gauge
Follow the upper radiator hose to the housing where it is located at the top of the engine.
Also possible is blocked radiator, water pump not working and or a head gasket if signs of water in the oil--several possible causes--remove thermostat and boil it in hot water to see if it opens or not.

Bad NEW thermostat? I had the same problem on my first generation Dakota. The problem for me turned out to be the DODGE thermostat I used to replace the old Dodge part. I went and got a Stant from local auto parts store using the standard temperature spec and quit shivering the next time I drove it. I hope that helps!

According to the Haynes manual, the thermostat is located by follwing the lower radiator hose from the radiator back to the engine. The housing for the thermostat is bolted on the side of the engine block facing the radiator.

Well My car I changed the head, and the head gasket. The gauge says the engine is overheating, but it is not true, the coolant is perfectly normal and no hose is inflating or whatsoever but the fan is always running.. You can blow your head or head gasket because the sensor is faulty ???!!!! Please I need an answer because I'm using my car for a couple of days even if it says its overheating ( It is not really overheating there probably is a faulty sensor.. ) but i'll stop using it if you can blow you head gasket because of a faulty sensor... !!!
