How long before it over heats? Does it lose anti-freeze slowly? If you can drive it days between fulling the anti-freeze tank and the next time it gets hot the radiator cap could be bad. They have two vales in them and sometime one or the other vale goes bad. Check this if it does not work ask me agian

Also, check your intake manifold. I don't know about VW but late 90's chevy's are known for leaking antifreeze from the back of the manifold.

    It sound's like you have a cracked head. The antifreeze galley runs through the head right beside the exhaust port. It sounds to me like there is a crack in the head between one of these ports. I know my first post said about the intake manifold, and it still could be that, but I would say a cracked head would be a more likely cause.

What is the problem with my 2003 VW Jetta 2.0 overheating?


It may also be the temperature sensor.
Not knowing your model, if it uses both a belt driven and electric fan, the electric fan (or its sensor) may have failed.
Turn on the AC to see if the electric fan will cycle as it should since this is used (in most vehicles) for engine cooling if the main fan isn't adequate whether AC is in use or not.
On high mileage engines if distilled water was not used instead of tap water (along with coolant), the radiator core can eventually become clogged with calcium deposits. .

Overheating...coolent is full. everything is fine think its the thermastat. DOnt know how to fix?


There are any number of things which can cause/contribute to an engine overheating. Some of them:
1. Thermostat stuck closed
2. Restriction/clog in the system (hoses, radiator)
3. Blown headgasket
4. Cracked head/block
5. Water pump not pumping
6. Water pump pully/belt
7. Cooling fan not fanning/turning
8. Restricted airflow through radiator vanes

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue

1999 VW Jetta, it overheats even after I replaced the thermostat and the plastic housing on the drivers side of the engine (it was cracked). I let it run with the res. tank open because I thought it might...


With the symptoms you describe, coolant is not circulating through the system. Your first move to replace the thermostat was good. My next move would be to replace the water pump. Good luck.

96 jetta 2.0l still overheating


so u pretty much replaced everything there is that could be the problem,fans turn on right??pump is working right??thermo is new right??ok so during the process of changing every thing you could have trapped air pockets in the cooling system ive seen this numerous times you can start there its the cheapest start,1st remove the radiator cap,2nd turn heater on high setting and temp to heat max, 3rd start ur car let the system cycle thermo has to open and close at least 2x's water is going to overflow to the ground its ok just dont lketr it empty youll see bubbles like air comming out let it run like 15min like this,turn the car off let it cool then place the cap back on make sure the seal is ok on radiator cao too!!hopefully thats all u need if not u may need a head gasket repaired they sell a green liquid at kragen oriely for blown head gaskets its like 25.00 it works pretty good for about 6000 miles to 10,000 miles MAKE SURE IF U USE IT FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS!! GOOD LUCK

2002 V.W. Jetta 2.0 liter overheat


turn your heater on to max heat and high fan. then see if you can feel the hoses on the firewall for heat they should be hot. make sure that the fan unit on the radiatoris working if the upper radiator hose is hot the fans should be running if they are not that means that either the relay is bad the thermo sensor is bad or the fan unit is shot... please rate the solution..........thanks
