Yes. If the Service Engine Light comes on it can be a majority of trouble codes that dont even have to do with the engine at all. That could easily be anything. If the thermostat is faulty/old it could easily cause overheating. So could using the wrong coolant, or if the coolant is leaking excessively from places. Make sure you check under the car after is been parked for 1 hr + to see if its leaking. hope this helps!

In heavy traffic where the car is stuck for a long time the engine has started to over heat with the computer STOP warning coming on. It has asked me to check coolant which is no just under the minimunm...


Is the cooling fan coming on and working? If not the fuse, or relay may be bad. Did you bleed all air from the system after the service, and did you replace the thermostat? If the thermostat was not replaced then replace it. If all this checks ok, then either the water pump has failed or the interior or exterior of the radiator is clogged. Use only G12 coolant in your VW.

If the check engine light is on look at the faults. It could be a defective cam sensor, the timing belt might not be in the place, or a defective mass air flow sensor.
