If your Jetta is a TDI as per the categeory, then this is normal, especially in cold weather. I will take a lot longer for a TDI to come to full operating temperature. The coolant temperature gauge can also go down when the car stops at traffic lights for short periods.

Does it eventually get warm again after driving a little?


IMPORTANT!!! Only have Thermostat, waterpump, and TB replaced by TDI experts!

Your Jetta has a block heater available. It plugs in and keeps the block warm, making it easier to start. Below is a link with step by step instructions for battery replacement.

2000 Jetta Tdi Cold start


most the time they don't. unless you said to. i live in Alaska, and when people buy new vehicles they say they can't put them in. if your not familar with cars than you should have it professionally done. sometimes it can be a pest. on the side of your engine block you should see an indent a little bit bigger than 50cent piece USD. it is a plug. you have to purchase the block heater (which is just an element) remove the plug and VERY quickly put the heater back in. the block heater keeps the coolant warm and is through the coolant duct. all the coolant will immediatly pore out. if it is installed wrong you will have a coolant leak. you should have it done professionally done to avoid future problems

Hi!
Looks like a classic air lock scenario! you need to perform a system bleed.
Park vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap. Start engine and leave to idle, turn heater to hot blower on full.
When at operating temp stand clear of coolant filler area, listen/watch hopefully gurgling and a boil over, top up when settled with very warm water/coolant, wait as it may do it a couple of times. Check for heat inside vehicle if hot and coolant settled replace cap but watch temp gauge for a while as another air lock may be in the system.
Please press the Blue button when sorted!
