Vw jetta iv, temperature alarm sounds and flash with no aparent reason. temperature dial indiator is ok.


I WOULD CHECK BOTH RADIATOR HOSES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE HOT. THERMOSTAT COULD BE STICKING SLIGHTLY CLOSED.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL MAKE SURE COOLANT NOT LOW.IF COOLING NOT BOILING OUT OF THE EXPANSION TANK. I WOULD HAVE CAR HOOKED UP TO A DIAGNOTIC SCANNER AND CHECK COOLANT TEMPERATURE SEE IF TEMP. OVER 230 DEGREES IF SO RADIATOR COOLING FANS NOT WORKING.COOLANT THERMO SWITCH BAD BOTH FANS SHOULD BE RUNNING AT LOW SPEED.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY LOW COOLANT SENSOR IN EXPANSION TANK.MAKE SURE COOLANT IS IN THE EXPANSION TANK BECAUSE COOLANT LEVEL COULD BE LOW.ADD COOLANT IN THE EXPANSION TANK UNTIL YOU AT MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.DONT OVER FILL THE EXPANSION KEEP ADDING COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STAYS AT THE MAX LEVEL LINE ON THE EXPANSION TANK.

How to tell if your 2000 Jetta gls vr6 need struts? My car squeeks when I driving and If I push down on the hood.


After ten years your are sure to need a new suspension. The way you cantell the shocks are gone is you'll see signs of fluid leaking from the inside of the top onto the outsides of the inner bottom. A couple of jacks and the right wrenches will be pretty easy for even a novice mechanic. Two to four hours your done, it will also increarse the cars hoursepower and preformance.

I have a 1997 vw jetta with the vr6 in it, and the heater core was recently replaced because of a leak, but now, that is fixed, but the car is overheating and shuts itself down after a few minutes of...


Ouch, don't let it overheat it'll cost you a new head gasket. You probably just don't have enough coolant. They probably filled it up and didn't run it to drain the reseroir and refill it. Check the coolant level, make sure it is full. Failing that, the thermostat might be stuck, the rad might be clogged if it's old, the new heater core might be the wrong one a too restrictive. I can't rememebr if my old VR6 had a ad cap but if it does take the coolant cover off the rad, start the car with it off... don't worry it's won't spit of anything, look down to see if the fluid is moving, if it is then you have circulation. Dont' run it like this for too too long as it will begine to Overflow. My bet is the coolant level bro. Cheers.

Electrical fans don't work


Several things can cause this. I'm 99% sure the sensor for the fan control is in the radiator its self. 3 wires if I remember correctly, This is the most common problem. If you dont know how to test it I recomend taking it to a garage. Is antifreeze full? Above the level of the sensor? The fans themself could be bad. Do either of them come on when you turn on the A/C? if so, that fan is good for sure. Either way, welcome to the wold of VW, time to test some wires. That gets a bit to involved to detail in here. Best bet for the D.I.Y.er is buy the dealer manual. Expensive but woth every penny!

After I drive around 30 KM, my 2000 Jetta VR6 's temperature goes up from 90 deg to alarm.


First when it has cooled down, check the water level in the radiator. Then determine it overheats while idling, does the fan turn on?

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.
