Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf

Vw transporter van 1994 overheating

On long trips in hot weather the car loses power and stops running. the temp gage is only sitting on half way and it has a new radiator. Someone said the problem is the fuel evaporating in the lines. I need to stop the car for about 10 mins before I can carry on but can only drive for another 20 mins at 60kph. Any suggestions?

Run fault codes and look for EVAP solenoid /sensor / valve as you may be developing a vacuum lock in the fuel line that is starving the fuel system.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8t that is overheating.

Assuming engine tune / mechanical condition is not the cause of the overheating:-
Ensure cooling fan is cutting in at the appropriate engine temperature - check operation of the fan controlling relay,
Ensure fan switching control temperature sensor is serviceable,
Ensure cooling system is filled properly, taking care to bleed out air where necessary,
Ensure coolant pressure cap is of correct rating and in serviceable condition,
Check coolant hose on suction side of waterpump is not softened and collapsing at engine revs above idle,
Ensure radiator core is not blocked or cooling airflow inhibited by insects etc.

Hi, Had the same problem, just found the fault,it was a brcken wire causing relay109 to drop out. It was in the upper of the two harnesses on the bulkhead above the air filter, if you pull back the outer sleave and check the thin black/white wire for a break I think you will find your problem. You should have 12v between it and positive. Good luck.

Coolant is low enough to trigger the sensor. There's a pressure leak somewhere in the system. The sensor is faulty.

I have a 2001 dakota that is overheating. put in new thermostat, didnt help. put in new water pump, still overheating. finally replaced the radiator. still is overheating. what else can I do to fix it


Sometimes when you open cooling system, air gets in, it can cause problems with temp gage.
How hot does it get in degrees F? Is the coolant boiling over? Are you losing coolant? Use a non-contact infra red temp gun to take engine temp, At least we will have a degrees F reading. Most temp gages say hi or lo, cold or hot. I don't know about yours?
Can you check for combustion gases in the coolant?

Everything has been replaced on my 2002 land rover discovery 4.0 and it still runs hot but my bottom hoses are cool to the touch


I'd probably have to double check your temp gage and go from there. What all did you replace? Other than your temp gage, any indications of overheating, like the engine smoking or coolant boiling over. Are you losing coolant? Does the radiator fan work? Did you check for coolant circulation. Check for combustion gases in the coolant.

How hot is the engine in degrees F? Are there any overheating issues besides temp gage? You may need to double check temp gage? If it is overheating, could be number of issues, some possibilities, thermostat--radiator fan--radiator--water pump. Also, you may need to check for combustion gases in the coolant? Are you losing coolant?

natural for engine temp to rise in Traffic - Until Themostat opens ) cooling fan sensor kicks on fan . But Antifreeze is not just a Cold weather item . Coolant is Absolutely Necessary for Hot Days . You must be full to recovery bottle setting of cold when checked prior to start up . Coolant for your make / model is Reddish - Pink colour and should have a reading of -25 thats negative 25 degrees the Lower the Better even - 50 .. Why ?? - 50 is 50 %% antifreeze / Coolant Concentrate MIX Gives Hot weather cooling Ability or very cold weather starting / winter HEAT .

My car has overheating out of ordinary found that water pump was leaking replaced it, drove 2 blocks car said overheated again. Replaced thermostat and it still said was overheating. Even after I let car...


Sounds like you need a temp sensor for the gage. There's 2 under the hood one is a 2 wire in the intake manifold driver's side & a single wire one under the exhaust crossover pipe,also driver's side. You want to change the single wire one. Yes,it's tough. If it's still overheating quick, then it's a head gasket.
