    Hey thanks for taking the time to help a stranger. I found it yesterday. There is substantial removal of armor when it comes to getting at the thermostat. Volks. probably does it on purpose so you'll bring it in. Thanks again.

Its to the right of the water pump towards the bottom of the engine.. Follow your lower radiator hose. Make sure to get some G12 coolant from VW before you do it. If you mix the coolants they turn into a gel that will cause you to overheat.

How do you know if the thermostat is bad on a 94 Jetta III GLS


When the engines cold start it up with the radiator cap off. As the engine warms up the thermostat will start to slowly open. When the thermostat fully opens you will see the water start flowing through the radiator where the cap goes. Its not fast, but it's noticeable. If it doesn't flow, and the gauge starts to goes past the normal position of the temperature gauge, and the coolant is coming out of the radiator. The thermostat is bad.

I can't find the thermostat on my 1996 jetta gls


On 1996 VW JETTA,The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering, then power steering pump and mounting bracket are to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump housing. There are three bolts that are very difficult to navigate around. The thermostat is located behind those bolts.
----------------- Thank you.

My 2001 VW JETTA GLS IS OVERHEATING


If one pipe from the radiator is hotter than the other one its usually the thermostat or water pump, seen as you already changed the thermostat id say its the waterpump.if you start the car when temp. is syill low enough to take the radiator cap off and leave it idleing and you see bubbles from the water at the cap then you possibly have a blowen head gasket etc

It will probably be your thermostat that is jammed open , try fitting a new one , the thermostat is located in the housing on the side of the engine usually just above the gearbox , trace the top radiator hose to the engine and you should be able to find where the thermostat is ,
