Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
Had this problem after replacing water pump. Hard system to bleed. small bleeders on heater hoses and one near the front of the engine.
VW vortex has a post on cooling system bleeding. check to see if both heater hoses are hot. if so check the climate control: push econ and mode at the same time. it will give you codes. The blend door can be checked for freedom of movement.

I would also have the system power flushed . The termostat on this cars can be a very expensive item to replace..probably 6 hrs of labor at $80.00 hr. The irony of all , the part cost is less than 30.00 dollars.Have it flushed for $100.00 to 150.00 dollars
