Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta
The thermostat is located behind the alternator. Atleast on the 1.8t it is. I had the same problem and same symptoms. I hate to tell you this but its probably not the thermostat. Its the water pump. They have plastic impellers on them that that deteriorate after a while. Make sure if you get your water pump replaced you get one that has a metal impeller on it. You should get a new timing belt well they are in there as well. They have a pretty good deal on kits at ecstunning.com
