Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand it would appear that the radiator fan is not working. In some versions, either the A/C or the heater must be turned on for the radiator fan to work. In some other incidents, the fan utilizes a clutch. Common design makes use of the inverse property of silica oil to serve as the clutch. Still others have a relay that actually does the switching on of the fan. Of course it would be to your advantage to likewise check the temperature sensor on the radiator.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

REMOVE RAD CAP AND RUN ENGINE AT 3000RPM WITH ALL HEATERS ON SOUNDS LIKE AIR LOCK, ALSO CHECK IF HOSES ARE HOT

Alright there your on the money there. A4 audi's and The 2liter golfs do haed gaskets at around 145-150,000 miles. the oil's foamy kinda yellowie cream. Tip for ya When you do the head gasket cahnge the rad and water pump at the same time. Mine didthe same it's costly but worth it for piece of mind, Plus is the only time you get to the water pump apart from changing the timing belt.
