Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
My boyfriend has been working on it for 2 days. he bought a book on how to fix it, but he got the book without the vr6 motor. so now theres things off that didnt need to come off, and he still cant figure it out. please help!!!!!!!!!
Get another boyfriend! "Just kidding"! ok, this is what I mean about "leaving it to the experts". #1 Make sure there is enough coolant, Check for leaks. Install a coolant pressure tester and check for leaks. Fix whats leaking. #2 Make sure coolant fans are coming on, and specifically at 220 degrees. If not, check fuses. Jump the coolant fan to make sure it comes on. if it does, then you may have a bad relay, make sure relay is commanded on. At this point , you may need a wire schematic for the coolant fans and related parts.

I assume he checked the thermostat, also the radiator cooling fans, do they run, when the engine gets hot? .. the radiator can be blocked or simply air trapped in the cooling system. it can be bleed by loosing the thermostat very slightly
while running.(be extremely careful)tighten when air/bubbles cease. make sure your rad is topped up. if not ok, check spark plug color, if engine's fuel mixture is too lean, it will cause overheating. or coolant pump may not be good
