    It's your original VW plastic water pump, the impeller inside is cracked and spinning slower or not at all from the shaft driven by the pulley. You need to replace it with a metal aftermarket water pump. Cost is around $59 - $89. It would be a good idea to do a timing belt service since it needs to be removed out of the way to get to the pump, replace the thermostat too. If you live in a warmer part of the world you have a choice of a lower temperature opening of your thermostat and also lower activation of your radiator fan.

is the fan working? Do you see any leaks anywhere? Look into thermastat, water pump, radiator, and hoses, for leaks or if working properly. See if your fan is coming on when it is supposed to. With that you should have an idea of what you need to do.

1997 a4 se overheating.i have changed the thermostat and car is still overheating.cold air is coming from the blower.car drives perfectly otherwise.fan is not coming on.how would i diagnose the problem


Alot of time you have to bleed the cooling system after changing a thermostat it gets an air pocket in it look for a bleeder valve near or on the thermastat housing if so bleed it to get the air out.check the radiator and make sure its full because if you filled it up after changing the thermastat once the thermastat opened after the engine ran awhile well the cooling system needs refilled.

Overheating


Posible thermastat sticking closed. If thermastat doesn't open heated water is trapped in the engine causing it to run hot and not allowing hot water to travle to the heater core when called for.
