My car is running codes P0011 and P2181. Can you tell me what that is please. 2004 vw jetta gl


P0011 - Camshaft positioning sensor
P2181 - Engine cooling temperature sensor.
If you have a repair manual (chilton/haynes/etc) these should be fairly simple fixes.
Camshaft positioning sensor for my car was $35 and took about 15 minutes to change.

2carpros.com suggested the P2181 is also fairly easy to replace

90 is the correct temp for this engine,if it goes right down then consider the thermostat faulty.if it goes higher...... (dont even think about overheating)YET.

93 Jetta is overheating. Changed the thermostat and the pump is working. On idle the temp stays down, but while driving rises fast.


Check to make sure there is no air in the cooling system,and make sure the cooling fans are working.The cooling fans should come on,on there own,and go off on there own,without the ac or defrost on,make sure they are off.

Radiator light flashes on jetta 1999.


It is either indicating overheating, or that you are low on coolant.

Car is overheating and we've replaced the thermostat and that wasn't the problem. How do I know if it's the water pump.


This could be a number of things,first does it do it while ur driving or mjust sitting in traffic. If it's sitting there it could be the electric fans by the rad. If it does it all the time it might need engine work such as the heads.

2002 VW fan stays on too long?


How does the temperature gauge read on your dash.. Is your car temp at 190 degrees while driving.. If its higher than 190 your overheating and that would cause the fan to cool her down.. good Luck
