Over the winter my water flange on my 2000 VW beetle, cracked. We noticed once the car over started flashing the high coolant temp alarm. I replaced the flange and re filled the engine coolant, now it...


hi.

i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you may have a blown head gasket.

the coolant is probably not boiling in the reservoir, but if the head gasket has blown by a cylinder, some of the gas is escaping form the cylinder and bubbling up through the coolant.

a pressure check on the cooling system will confirm this, but you could also check the exhaust gas.
if it is white in colour, or has a sweet sugary smell, then this will mean that coolant is also being burnt in the cylinder.

please feel free to ask of you have any more questions.

Coolant is low enough to trigger the sensor. There's a pressure leak somewhere in the system. The sensor is faulty.

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.

From what i read, the flashing temp light means the coolant level is low. Check your coolant reservoir. See this webpage for more information:

The temerature light comes on at startup and stays on for 3-4 minutes before going off


If the light is coming on, they should be hooking a computer up to the car to see what the car computer is exactly trying to say. Maybe low coolant, bad thermostat, blockage in radiator restricting flow, it could be a number of things. Does it come on more often in the city or the highway driving?
