Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
I have already replaced the thermostat. That didn't fix it. My coolant levels are fine. The temp gage never got up to the halfway point (atleast very seldom). Sometimes, the temp gage would actually go down some when driving the car. No problems with overheating or getting too hot. If anything, it didn't show on the temp gage that it was getting that warm at all.
It will probably be your thermostat that is jammed open , try fitting a new one , the thermostat is located in the housing on the side of the engine usually just above the gearbox , trace the top radiator hose to the engine and you should be able to find where the thermostat is ,

SOURCE: fuel filter location
its located outside and next to the fuel tank. There is no specified replacement interval, but 95k might be a good time to replace it. There is no need to replace the fuel pump unless it packs up, there is also no need to drop the tank to do this either, it can be accessed by removing the rear seat bench, underneath this will be a plastic access cover giving you access to the pump.
the filter is underneath the car right next to the tank.

Testimonial: "it was were u said it would be, thanx alot"
The secondary aux air pump needs to be removed in order to access the coil pack secured to the block. Remember the bolt for the coil needs to be torqued down to 7ft lb.

had replaced: both cooling fans, fan control module, coolant temp
sensor, fan switch, 4 terminal connectors. No trouble codes reported in
VW electronic diagnostic test. 2 different VW dealers and and my
mechanic threw in the towel. Any suggestions greatly appreciated."
This is a common problem with the VW..and no one has an answer WHY. (including VW mechanics)
THIS IS A RECALL ISSUE and should be implemented
