It's not all that uncommon for the temperature gauge to rise somewhat when idling with the a/c on in hot weather. When the engine is idling the amount of air that is being pulled through the a/c condensor, oil cooler, and radiator is greatly reduced and as a result the temperature of the coolant may rise by up to 20 degrees or so. Since your air conditioning is still blowing cool air that generally means that the radiator fan is working properly and able to remove the heat from the a/c system. Because the a/c condensor is ahead of the radiator all the heat that is pulled from the condensor then gets pulled [as hot air] through the radiator before finally being pulled into the engine compartment by the cooling fan, thus it is adds to the heat load that the radiator has to handle. Be sure to check your coolant level and keep a close watch on the gauge just in case you have something else going on [and of course make sure that the engine never actually overheats] but once cooler weather comes the problem will probably go away. One other thing you should check is too see how much crud has built up between the radiator and a/c condensor. There is a about a 2" gap between the two and it is a notorious spot for bugs, leaves, and other debris to collect. You might have to remove the top of the radiator shroud to see what has collected there and to wash out anything that has. Good luck, hope this helps a bit.

Look to see if it has a electric fan for the condenser and radiator,if it does not,the fan clutch is bad,if it does have a electric fan for the ac ,make sure it is coming on every time the ac is turned on.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.

Car temp gauge/heat


TDIs can take a while to heat up in cold weather. Sometime 10 minutes or more.

If it is taking longer than 10 mins for your temp gauge to hit 190, you may need a new temp sensor, which is pretty cheap and just pops into the engine block, almost right next to the battery.
