Question about 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan

1 Answer

Radiator fan spins after shut off

I have a 2007 Jetta Wolfsberg w/ 67500 miles. Recently, the fan runs quite loudly whilw driving & remains on for a little while after I shut the car off. I just replaced the OEM tires with the same Conti's to get another 67k.
I have 3 questions:
1. why does the fan spin now & it didn't before? It's not summer yet & I don't remember it doing it over the last 2 years.
2. Am I going to need any major maintenance soon (timing belt) due to my relatively high mileage for a 2.5 yr old car?
3. If I continue to maintain the car, can I expect it to run reliably for another 100k miles? My current yearly mileage will be more like 15k-20k, not the 30k each for the 1st 2 years.
Thanks!!
Steve

The fan running on could be a problem fan relay or coolant system sensor
manufacturers recommend a timing belt change at 100,000 klms so you will be safe there for a bit
At the 100,000klms mark replace the belt, crank and cam shafts oil seals , idler pulleys and hydraulic adjuster as the seals will be starting to leak as will the adjuster and oil is not friendly to timing belts
it is a vw so maintaining the car properly may get you another 100,000 klms but the reliability of the car decreases each year
best course of action is regular servicing with periodic fault code reading
oil and filter changes every 10,000klms

SOURCE: 2005 vw jetta radiator cooling fan wont shut off

Check for a switch at lower part of rad. Should see a wire harness & plug on a sensor at bottom of rad. This sensor/switch also operates fan on/off according to coolant temperature. You may need to disconnect battery to get at it safely.

The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.

After driving my 2007 honda pilot for about 25 to 30 miles the engine light comes on then VSA light comes on then I lose power.SO I shut it off the car & have to wait a while then I can drive a li


Why did you not leave the vehicle at a repair shop or dealer
to be properly diagnosed & repaired

Any time you get any dash light on after the motor is running I
check for codes that day & get on with the required checking
& resolving within days or use another vehicle

You should stop using a vehicle with check lights & faults
& forget the free codes checks at the parts stores


Always use a professional scan tool & look at all data real time
generic & enhanced something a code read won't do & go for
a long road test with the scan along

Cylinder misfires will ruin an expensive exhaust converter
as will vacuum leaks,leaking injectors etc.

Today's vehicles need to be 100% or parked or you create
problems,do damage,run up your repair costs & shorten the
life of the vehicle all thanks to the Govt Emission non-sense

2007 VW Jetta (wolfsberg). It's making grinding


It sounds like the inner liner of one of your wheel wells has come loose and is touching the wheel. This would make a sound while moving, but not while stopped. Look inside your wheel wells for the plastic lining that goes all the way around the tire. Look for wear signs. It may even be a hole by now. If you see wear, tug on that wheel well liner to see if it is loose. If so, get replacement screws to hold it in place.

That would explain rumble sounds, high pitched sounds, changing sound when hitting bumps. And it would not affect any dynamics.

The creaking and groaning when car is turned off is a different animal. Possibly something to do with A/C which is depressuring after the car is turned off. To determine if that is the case, see if it makes the same sounds if you've been driving with the A/C off? If not, it's A/C related.

2002 Jetta 1.8T blew 40A cooling fan fuse - overheated, destroyed 4 way cooling hose connector - replaced all- now it still runs very hot, inside temp reads 190 (but temp is much higher), cooling fans run...


Then replace the thermostat, because if on lower hose not hot and on upper hose scalding hot = antifreeze flow blocked by the thermostat wich remains closed!!!

Thermostat replacing:

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off


You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.

I have a 2007 Jetta with 40,500 miles and just noticed that the cooling fans remained on for over 6 minutes after a short trip to Walmart(6 miles roundtrip) . I have not noticed it before.


that is normal after shutting the car off. Do you change your thermostat and coolant every two years? If not its time to do so. Then the fans will not run so long next time

How to change the fuel filter (that is under the back seat) of a 2001 Volkswagon Jetta Wolfsberg Edition.


The fuel filter for a diesel engine (Tdi) is in the engine bay, a little behind the front right headlamp. The only thing under the back seat is a circular plastic access panel, which when removed gives you access to the fuel pump.

Does this appear to happen when the fan is going? Try having your fan belt checked.

Fanning running


If no engine lights are coming on, and the dealership has diagnosed it normal, I wouldn't worry. Electric fans may stay on even after the car is shut off to help cool the engine. Usually there is a warning in the engine bay stating this.
