Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion
Boils over after driving 10 mins
Check that you put the thermostat in correctly. The body of the unit goes into the water in the head or block and not into the hose.

SOURCE: 2000 Vw passat,had no heat.
The heater in your car depends upon a flow of hot coolant going through the heater core in order to get hot air into the car. If the heater core is partially plugged, it will restrict the flow. If you have a head gasket that is putting exhaust into the cooling system, it will eventually get into the heater core. When this happens there is no coolant in the heater core to make the air warm. If the water pump vanes have corroded away the result will be very poor coolant circulation causing the heater to not blow hot air. If your car is equipped with a heater control valve that is not functioning properly, the coolant flow will be restricted. One or a combination of these factors is likely the culprit in your case.
To attempt to clean the core, you must flush the system multiple times. If it is still problematic, changing it is your only remaining option besides the water pump itself.

In the fan circuit...You have a temp switch screwed on the radiator, a fuze and a relay in the fuze box plus a fan. Swap the relay with another relay, replace the fuze. The other fan should come on when the a/c is turned on. If you fix the fans and it still overheats, you may have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET. ALSO ARE YOU BLEEDING THE AIR FROM THE SYSTEM? DO YOU SMELL EXHAUST IN THE COOLANT?

Take the car to an aircon specialist, the circuit must be inspected and, if necessary, refilled. You should also check the valve on the heater, it might be stuck open.
