Question about 1984 Volkswagen Quantum

1 Answer

2001 20.0 jetta

The car overheated the other day so I limped and stopped numerous times to get home. I have changed the thermostat as well as the fan sensor located on the radiator return hose. I also checked the old thermo and it did open. I have the bell and temp sensor going off in the car. I am SURE it had coolent so please rule that out. The hose on the high side is hot so I know the water is getting to the motor. I have no fans even with the A/C switch on. Car idles forever @ 190 but as soon as you drive quickly heats up.

Suggestions [please???

Hi.
I would begin to suspect that the water pump is not working properly. Is the bottom radiator hose hot too, and do you have the type of expansion tank which allows you to see the water going round?

Of course, if coolant is being pushed out of the system that would point to a blown head gasket but you haven't mentioned that, so I would suspect the water pump or the belt that drives it. Do you get a squeaking noise when you start from cold?

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.

yes vw is very dependant on the cooling fan coolant pressure and expecially coolant mixture, check the gasket on the expansionbottle, as that can cause problems too, anyone of these will result in overheating
