Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
Ok........before replacing the thermostat, I would have run the car for 15-20 minutes, then turned the engine offf.......then feel the top and bottom radiator hoses.....if they are the same, and the fan did not come on, then this would be the fault........however, if the top was boiling hot and the bottom was cold this would indicate a faulty thermostat...........
Next step, as the thermostat is new.......run this test again and if the hoses are different temperatures, then this might indicate a blocked radiator......BUT more info required....is the temperature gauge going past half way ?????
