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.

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

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.

Overheating and heater not work


there is a valve on the water pump and one on the thermostat housing open those up one at a time until you get a little bit of antifreeze come out then tighten them back up. All you will be doing is bleeding the air out of the cooling system. my car was doing the same thing after I changed my thermostat.
