it could be the thermostat. if the car stays at normal operating temp at idle and only gets hot when you drive it is the water pump. i just changed one that never overheated at idle even when it set for an hour or more. as soon as I tried to drive it I would get a mile down the road and it would be burning hot. took the water pump off and the impeller was spinning on the pump shaft.

New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.


Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.
