It may be a couple of things, first before you replace the water pump, you need to warm the car up, and locate the thermostat houseing, it will have two hoses attached, and one will go to the radiator, and it will be on the engine, after you locate it, warm the car up, after it is warmed up, feel the hoses going too and from the thermostat houseing, if they are both warm, then it is not the thermostat, if they are not both warm, then your thermostat is junk, cheap fix, and easy to replace. let me know, and i will help you from their...........

I have 2002 vw jetta wagon and it keeps over heating. We have changed the thermostat fuses relays and the heater core connector. We think the water pump is working fine because it has pressure and...

Pressure is not a good indicator of water pump operation. Pressure in the cooling system comes from the heating of the water and its expansion. Jettas come from the factory with plastic impellers on their water pumps. These have a tendency to break and fail, causing overheating issues. Most aftermarket pumps have metal impellers to prevent this from happening. I would seriously consider having the water pump replaced, especially if it is original and you have more than say 60K miles on the car. It's due for a change anyway and may save you your engine. See what this guy had to say about his Jetta.....

Why is there no heat when idling

I can think of several possibilities:
1. Bad thermostat, keeping coolant temp too low for heat.
2. Heater fan not working.
3. Water pump not pumping enough coolant to provide heat when idling.

No heat from heater

pretty simple easier if the fan does not run from the water pump and change the thermostat and drive belts at the same time.. if the fan is off of the waterpump it the nut loosens turning it right not left

VW jetta over heating after new thermostat installed

there could be an air gap in you coolant circuit, make sure you have purged the entire cooling system of air that might have been be trapped in the cooling circuit when you changed the T-stat.

Heat gauge shows hot , have to add antifreeze although no leak

Very common fault is head gaskets.  causing coolant consumption and bubbles in radiator.  Run vehicle, have a friend accelerate once or twice hard, while you smell exhaust for sweet smell of burning coolant.
