My 2003 plate MK4 Golf wouldn't heat up

after changing thermostat was system bled correctly. also check relay and fuses, as well as door actuator under dash that allows door to swing from heat to a.c. sometimes switch goes bad, also make sure a.c. compressor isn't continuously running, some cars do but most do not. last but not least check to see if heater core is clogged hope this helps thanx

Little or no heat

Is both heater hoses hot? Could need radiator and heater core flush. Water pump propellers could be detoriated. I have seen this on vehicles before. Just some ideas to look at.

Heater blows cold air and the temperature guage reads cold after driving for 20 minutes

Best case scenario is your thermostat is stuck open. When this happens the engine will take a long time to warm up and will never get up to full temp. Worst case could be a serious problem such as a blown head gasket. If there is no coolent in the engine the temp gauge will not register either.

My mazda protege is having a heating problem. The temp guage will go up to the normal place as the engine warms up but then when I drive down the road the temp guage goes down to below cold and then my car...

I believe the mazda protege has a separate thermoswitch to activate the radiator's fan. Perhaps the fan keeps blowing until the temperature is too low. Try replacing the fan thermoswitch. Just take care to put in tis place a thermoswitch of the same temperature range.

Hi,we have a reccurring starting poblem with our 2000 1.9 New Beetle(approx 125,000kms,regularly serviced) ie Golf Mk4 , which may be related to the "Maf Sensor". The sensor was already replaced...

Clean the MAF sensor with MAF sensor cleaner. If the hot wire inside becomes dirty, it can cause hard starting.

Check the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor and the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. If either of these two sensors are disconnected, wiring to them broken, or if they failed in the full cold mode, they will send wrong information to the powertrain computer. The computer will schedule too much fuel for warm starts and the engine will flood.

No heat or AC in MK4 Golf GTi

The only common faulf is that the heater motor resistor has burnt out or corroded due to a water ingress . The ac take a control feed from the first position resistor when the fan position 1 is selected . Regards VW Audi Tech
