Idles high when cold 2004 jetta 1.8 t


This is normal. The ECM monitors engine temperature and increases idle when it sees the engine is cold. The ECM sets the idle back to normal when engine temperature rises.

Temperature gauge cold then back to normal


You have to make sure the thermostat is working properly and is the correct one. Idle the vehicle for about 20 minutes and then feel the upper radiator hose. It should be hot to the touch. Drive the vehicle and when the temp gauge falls to 'cold' stop and feel it again. If it is much cooler to the touch than before the thermostat is defective or wrong.

Your thermostat may be stuck in the open position. The original thermostat is a 195 degree. Your engine should be warm enough to blow heat in 5 minutes of idling or driving.

Car getting hot


1) Is there enough coolant in the radiator?
2) Have you noticed if the electric fans are kicking on when the temp is going high? I'm guessing that they are not, the temp switch may be faulty.

Could be a thermostat issue?


Could be a faulty thermostat. Take a piece of cardbourd and cut it so you can put it in front of the radiator and fix it so it will stay there. Drive the car and watch your temperature gauge to see if it warms up faster but be careful as to not let it overheat. If it starts to heat up cut a 1/4 of the cardboard so a little more of the radiator shows then watch the temperature gauge. Leave it there for the winter then take it out. That is the cheapest remedy when it is cold. I take it when your heater blows it is not not every warm is that correct?

My temperature gauge read red... the light came on and I turned the heater on to try to help it cool down,it worked, but there was no heat coming from the vents. when i turn the heat off, temp rises...


Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, what you describe will happen, the engine will run hot, and the heat won't seem to work (coolant level too low to circulate through the heater core). Hope it's that simple, if not, let me know and I'll attempt to help further. Good luck!

Inconsistent heat.


The first thing i would do is replace thermostat and bleed cooling system, then re-check, It sounds like you have a defective thermostat.
