Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf
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.

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.
