I have 2002 vw jetta wagon and it keeps over heating. We have changed the thermostat fuses relays and the heater core connector. We think the water pump is working fine because it has pressure and...


Pressure is not a good indicator of water pump operation. Pressure in the cooling system comes from the heating of the water and its expansion. Jettas come from the factory with plastic impellers on their water pumps. These have a tendency to break and fail, causing overheating issues. Most aftermarket pumps have metal impellers to prevent this from happening. I would seriously consider having the water pump replaced, especially if it is original and you have more than say 60K miles on the car. It's due for a change anyway and may save you your engine. See what this guy had to say about his Jetta.....

96 JETTA TREK RUNNING HOT I HAVE REPLACED THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND WATER PUMP WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THE OVER HEATING


Run the car and check your hoses, Most likely it is the thermostat sticking closed and not allowing water to flow back to the radiator if your top hose is not hot and you can squeeze it then it is your thermostat.

1999 VW Jetta, it overheats even after I replaced the thermostat and the plastic housing on the drivers side of the engine (it was cracked). I let it run with the res. tank open because I thought it might...


With the symptoms you describe, coolant is not circulating through the system. Your first move to replace the thermostat was good. My next move would be to replace the water pump. Good luck.

I can't find the thermostat on my 1996 jetta gls


On 1996 VW JETTA,The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering, then power steering pump and mounting bracket are to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump housing. There are three bolts that are very difficult to navigate around. The thermostat is located behind those bolts.

Then replace the thermostat, because if on lower hose not hot and on upper hose scalding hot = antifreeze flow blocked by the thermostat wich remains closed!!!

VW jetta over heating after new thermostat installed


there could be an air gap in you coolant circuit, make sure you have purged the entire cooling system of air that might have been be trapped in the cooling circuit when you changed the T-stat.
