Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
Dashboard overheat warning light blinks continuously after running about 5-miles on stop go situation. Previous 50-50 coolant mixture already drained through lower radiator hose & refilled it to max level after. No water apparently from hot engine seems to reach radiator to cool as its fan does not get activated. Some say it's a faulty sensor by the radiator(?); some, a thermostat that won't open; others, my water pump. What is the root cause of all this? And IF it is a wornout thermo-stat, where specifically is it located?
It is not the thermostat since it only overheat on stop n go situation. Most likely cause is a bad radiator fan. Turn on the AC and see if both the radiator, and the condenser fan works. They should both be working when the AC is turned on. Lets stick to this for now. Let me know what happened. I don't want to confuse you with too many possiblity.
