Sound like engine is running hot . make sure your cooling fan is operating. check or replace thermostat.if all is good you could have a faulty temp switch.

Faulty temp switch. replace and try. This component is prone to failure and is not expensive to replace.

My heater only blows cold air and the temp gauge does not work, VW T4 Transporter


When you say temp gauge does not work, could it be the engine does not get hot due to stuck thermostat?

If your coolant overflow is bubbling then regardless of what your gauge says you are having overheating issues. If your coolant is missing with no aparent leaks then you need to check your oil for a milky consistency and apearance which would most likely point to a blown head gasket. This would also explain overheating. Hope this helps

The beeping alarm would be for leaving the key in the ignition or the lights on. Maybe a gauge that had dropped to zero.
Let us know if it happens again and what the conditions are.

My 2000 Toyota Echo has the red engine temp light flashing. I checked the coolant container about an hour after I parked in the shade of my house. (95 degrees here today and I was driving on the highway...


a flashing check engine light (CEL) is a warning to stop driving-one that is on steady (not blinking) means something is wrong, but blinking is BAD-make sure it is completely cooled down, and fill the overflow/surge tank, start it up (use 50/50 antifreeze) and let it idle until the engine temp is all the way up-this can take 10-15 minutes, make sure the heater is on high temp setting and the fan is on-look at the temp gauge if it has one to see if it looks normal. If all looks good, fill the tank to the FULL mark (or a hair above it) and put the tank cap on tight. Drive the car for about 10 minutes, and pay attention to the temp gauge-if it looks good, and the engine is alright, the CEL probably with either not light or will go off by itself.

It is possible you did damage driving it with a flashing CEL, however-if so look for leaks, smoke out of the exhaust, poor running/performance, or more ominous signs of trouble like air bubbles in the overflow tank, oil in the antifreeze of antifreeze in the oil-aluminum engines do NOT tolerate overheating, if you ever see a high temp gauge and/or a flashing CEL-STOP and get it checked out, you will save yourself a lot of money being prudent.

Start with checking your coolant level( only use VW coolant if low). If full, change out your coolant temp sensor. Buy the one from the dealership. The others are ****.

Vw problems


Be very careful with this. I had a car that had the dash oil light flicker on and off then would come on for a few mins and go then stayed on. I assumed it was a dodgy connection. Turned out the oil pump was on the way out and cos I was still using it ended up snapping the crank shaft and made s#!t of the engine. Replacement engine was then put in.
Could be something small or something huge!!!
