2002 VW Jetta 1.8T: Coolant temp began rising to

2002 VW Jetta 1.8T: Coolant temp began rising to dangerous levels. The coolant level is just fine and the radiator fan fuse is also fine. Would this be my radiator fan that needs replacement or some other issue?

Ok a very important step in these cooling systems is to purge and make the air that does not have problems if the temperature rises and you have to open the tap to get the air and you'll gradually pouring coolant out until they stop air bubbles ....... Thanks

2002 dodge neon running VERY HOT ... what to do next?


Have you verified that system has been "burped" of air? That the fans kick on? Check radiator hoses for kinks. You can try running without the thermostat to see if that helps and can identify if the thermostat could be a problem. You may need to check your coolant mixture too.
Sounds like you have reduced flow or restriction in cooling (heat exchanger) as it runs fine at cooler temp but can't keep up when it gets warm.
New parts don't always equal working fine parts.

Vw jetta iv, temperature alarm sounds and flash with no aparent reason. temperature dial indiator is ok.


I WOULD CHECK BOTH RADIATOR HOSES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE HOT. THERMOSTAT COULD BE STICKING SLIGHTLY CLOSED.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL MAKE SURE COOLANT NOT LOW.IF COOLING NOT BOILING OUT OF THE EXPANSION TANK. I WOULD HAVE CAR HOOKED UP TO A DIAGNOTIC SCANNER AND CHECK COOLANT TEMPERATURE SEE IF TEMP. OVER 230 DEGREES IF SO RADIATOR COOLING FANS NOT WORKING.COOLANT THERMO SWITCH BAD BOTH FANS SHOULD BE RUNNING AT LOW SPEED.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY LOW COOLANT SENSOR IN EXPANSION TANK.MAKE SURE COOLANT IS IN THE EXPANSION TANK BECAUSE COOLANT LEVEL COULD BE LOW.ADD COOLANT IN THE EXPANSION TANK UNTIL YOU AT MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.DONT OVER FILL THE EXPANSION KEEP ADDING COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STAYS AT THE MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.

2000 jetta 2.0 gas - 15-20 sec after starting car the water temp alarm goes off; 60 sec later turns off. car runs fine and temp gage reads normal. Any ideas?


Have you checked the coolant level in the overflow tank? Make sure it's to the proper level. The coolant warning system can lose its little brain on the VW's. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Check your coolant level and condition. If you havent' replaced the coolant in a while then change it. You can drain it from the bottom of the radiator plug. You may also want to change your oil and oil fiter.

Car getting hot


1) Is there enough coolant in the radiator?
2) Have you noticed if the electric fans are kicking on when the temp is going high? I'm guessing that they are not, the temp switch may be faulty.

Is the coolant level ok? After replacing the thermostat, did you bleed the air from the system? The bleeder should be at the front (on engine near radiator). Low coolant level, or air in the system can cause what you describe.

No heat


From what you have posted, it sounds like your coolant level is low. With engine cold, re-fill the system, then check carefully for leaks. One leak has been located you can take necessary steps to correct it.
Generally the reason for your problem symptoms is that the coolant level has dropped below the level of the cylinder head. This can cause the head to overheat and warp, bloww a head gasket, or both! (both substantial $ to repair) DO NOT drive vehicle with this condition, till you have found and corrected the problem!!!
Good Luck!!
