Check your coolant level, if it is OK,check for a bad theromstat or bad water pump. Check your water pump belt, replace if worn, damaged or missing, also check the tension of the belt. It should be about a 1/4 inch deflection.

I have replaced theromstat,water pump and waterpump pulley and car gagr goes into the red in about 10 mins. i did find the radiator fan switch line broken wire broken, Help


fan clutch isn't spinning the fan to pull air to cool car. replace fan clutch assembly. that fan alone should keep the car in the mid zone. electric auxillary is for A/C and overheating only.

Transmission fluid 1988 vw scirocco


Put it down the dipstick tube that you check the trans fluid with using a funnel. Don't put much in at a time before you check the level - remember to check the level with engine running, trans warmed up after driving 15 minutes and the car in park with parking brake on. Put the fluid in and see what it does for your shifting.

VW Scirocco overheats


On some water pipes there are plastic bleed units. You could also try and bleed the system as follows. Inside the car set the heater to full. Then take the cap off the exspansion bottle. Now run the car and feel for the heat from the heater. Also check the bottle for bubbles. Do not let the engine over heat.
