Try REMOVING the thermostat... if this cures the problem then the thermostat was faulty or incorrectly installed or the wrong T-stat. If this does NOT fix it then suspect a clogged radiator... (this would explain why the fan doesn't come on.. the thermostatic switch in the radiator doesn't warm up!)

I have a 1999 mk4 golf 1.8 gti. i get no hot air blowing in and the engine temp rises alot when i go above 60mph


Low coolant level, failed thermostat, blocked radiator core or failed pump are all possible causes. Check them in the order given in the list as they become more complex and expensive to fix. Coolant level is easy enough to check, if low just top up at the reservoir. Whilst doing this check that the relief valve in the cap is OK and that the filler cap sits tightly when screwed down. For the thermostat drain the coolant (should be a bled valve for this purpose towards bottom of radiator) into a bucket and remove the 'stat housing and put the 'stat in a pan of simmering water. The 'stat plate should open up about 5mm. Take the pan from the heat and add cold water and the 'stat should close after about a quarter volume of cold water has been added. If the 'stat fails to open or close then replace it. Whilst the system is drained of coolant remove the top and bottom rubber hoses from the radiator. With a hose flush water into the top radiator opening and check if water exits freely from the bottom of the radiator. If there is a sign of blockage put the hose in the bottom opening and put the water on full pressure to back flush the radiator. Keep doing this until the water is clear. If everything up until now has been fine the last thing to look at is the water pump, either the pump has seized or there is a fault with impeller. When refilling the coolant system after any repair make sure that the interior heater is on maximum. When warming the engine up keep the heat on maximum and this will help displace air trapped in the system. Whilst warming up squeeze the radiator hoses regularly again to keep bubbles moving towards the reservoir filler. Keep the reservoir topped up as air bubbles work their way out. Only when the engine is nearly at running temperature tighten the filler cap. After having driven the car, let it cool off and check the coolant level, again top up as necessary.

How do i replace the radiator on my vw golf mk4 1.9tdi year 2000


  • Drain coolant from bottom hose through a valve
  • Disconnect coolant hoses from radiator
  • Remove front body section and move lock carrier to service position
  • Remove retaining clamps from A/C hoses near condenser
  • Unbolt A/C condenser from radiator and support condenser with wire or heavy duty tie wraps Note: Do not discharge the A/C refrigerant. Support the A/C condenser with wire and avoid stretching or kinking the hoses.
  • Remove radiator mounting bolts from both sides and slide radiator slightly to the rear
  • Remove radiator and fans together from below
  • Installation is the reverse of removal

I need to drain the water out of a 1996 vw golf and need to know where the drain plug is or if i just have to take the hose off.


Most radiator drains today are made of plastic and when you try to open them they either break or leak when you close it. I'd take the bottom hose off. Make sure the coolant isn't hot.

How to flush the anti-freeze in1997 gran marquis


remove bottom and top caps from radiator, turn car on, place water hose in radiator, turn water on slow, let run for a while, making sure water is constantly coming out of the bottom of the radiator. keep an eye on hose to ensure water is not coming out too fast and that the hose does not come out of the radiator. watch color of water at the bottom, wait till it is totally clear before taking the hose out and shutting off the car. make sure you turn car off the allow all the water to come out. replace bottom cap, then fill with 50/50 fluid to proper level and fill side container to proper level as well
