Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

2001 vw jetta 2.0 Gls - Heat blows cold air.

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.

Heater runs hot then goes cold


Do you have a temperature gage in your instrument cluster? When the temp goes cold, does the temp gage rise? Check your coolant level both in the radiator and the coolant recovery tank under the hood, and fill as necessary. If that is OK, then check your serpentine belt for wear and/or slippage around the water pump. Lastly, if you have a temp gage and are noticing fluctuations in the reading, you may need to replace your cooling system thermostat. Good luck.

go to autozone rent the free tool called a block tester buy the fluid for it (about $8.00 us)drive the car make sure the resivour is about 3 inches down so you dont suck any fluid into block tester. pour blue fluid into block tester put it in antifreeze resavour. squeeze bulb sucking air from resouivour for up to 2 minutes if fluid turns yellow your head gaskets are leaking. I think you may find this to be your problem

Replace the thermostat, if that does not cure the issue you have a slight head gasket leak. I am a retired Ford dealer tech and this is what I have found causes this issue.
