    Are you sure it was replaced with a "new" radiator, and not a used one?

1991 Subaru Legacy - non turbo Car runs great !! Except my daughter rear-ended another car - it seemed like it did not hurt it but now it keeps going hot. At 1st it was overheating - replaced thermostat...


When your daughter rear ended the other car, she could have caused one hose somewhere to get a kink in it. Please follow especially the pipes underneath to check for a kink. It may be a very small hose but it can cause this problem. It did it to my 1990 VW Golf GTI.

It could also be that there was a metal pipe that bent also and water is not circulating properly.

Vw golf 2001. coolant system not working


Your most probable cause for this is because your water valve needs replacement or repairing. Not all cars have a water valve that brings the heated coolant into the heater core unit.

Essentially, the heated coolant is brought from the engine block directly, into a mini radiator that has a fan to blow heated air into your vehicles cabin.

If that valve were clogged, or the switch itself to open up the water valve that blocks the coolant from going into the heater core unit, then you wont be able to get heat from the vents.

ALSO, another reason why your car might also be overheating as well, is you need to check your coolant levels as well to make sure it is fully filled up, if it is, then your thermostat might also need replacement.

good luck with your problem.

My mrk 4 golf gti says its over heating they is water in it there is no water in the oil no oil in the water there is heat coming out of the heaters


it sounds like your thermostat is on its way out get this checked asap. the other thing the fan may not be working correctly or sometimes they work intermitently.

I had a golf a few years back, I had the same fault but it was the radiator had blocked up although there was water in it etc it still overheated until I changed the rad.

To be sure get the thermostat checked and then have the radiator flushed through.

Dan

Vw golf 2.0 gti, overheating, boiling water, no power loss


Sounds like you may need a new Thermostat.

Get a Haynes or Chilterns manual and a new Thermostat for the carfrom a car parts place like Autozone. Its normally a simple opperation to change it.
