How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

yes vw is very dependant on the cooling fan coolant pressure and expecially coolant mixture, check the gasket on the expansionbottle, as that can cause problems too, anyone of these will result in overheating

My 2001 VW JETTA GLS IS OVERHEATING


If one pipe from the radiator is hotter than the other one its usually the thermostat or water pump, seen as you already changed the thermostat id say its the waterpump.if you start the car when temp. is syill low enough to take the radiator cap off and leave it idleing and you see bubbles from the water at the cap then you possibly have a blowen head gasket etc

Dont know where thermostat goes. engine overheating, coolsnt not cycling.


The thermostat is bolted into the bottom of the water pump, the lower radiator hose connects to a cover that holds the thermostat to the water pump.

the thermostat can be difficult to get at because the AC and power steering pump are all bolted on top of the water pump,

Your problem may not be a bad thermostat.
I would also check:

1) water pump, some of the vw pumps are poorly made & tend to go bad.

2) fans belts, it can be tricky to get the right tension on these belts due to a badly designed tensioner system on the power steering & water pump belt.

3) hoses, radiator, coolant tank,. the radiators and coolant tank tend to leak when they get old, the plastic cracks or the rubber seals go bad.
Also check the electrical system controlling the engine cooling fans. there are sensors and relays that can go bad.
I have owned 8 vw's most of the major problems with these cars was due to electical problems.

4) Engine problems such as a blown head gaskets, or ignition timing problems can cause overheating. luckily VW engines usually don't have these problems, unlike other companies 4 cylinder engines (the Dodge Neons for example)

2005 vw jetta gli overheating at above idle


Check to see if any of the hoses are kinked. Its also vary commen for new termostats to fail. If its not that then more then likely its the water pump.

97 jetta gt 2.0 overheating


if the coolant is full and all the air is bleed out of the cooling system make sure the cooling fans turn on if not then check the relays and fuses and wiring. and if thats ok then use a block tester to check for a combustion leak. you can get a block tester for a parts store you simply install it in place of the radiator cap and run the car the chemical in the block tester will change color from blue to yellow if there is a combustion leak.

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.
