Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have a 2003 TDI Jetta - it typically runs at 190 for temp, but when cold out it will not get there and sitting idle does not warm the car but blows cold air and driving at slow speeds it seems to drop the car temp and no heat in the car. What might be the problem?
TDIs can take a while to heat up in cold weather. Sometime 10 minutes or more.
If it is taking longer than 10 mins for your temp gauge to hit 190, you may need a new temp sensor, which is pretty cheap and just pops into the engine block, almost right next to the battery.
