Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf
Are you bleeding the air out of the cooling system, you must do that or it will get air pockets and overheat.

How do you know it is overheating, since the engine is supposed to get up to 200 degrees? If it is boiling over, it could just be a leaking reservoir cap. The top radiator hose could be old, soft, and collapsing under the suction. The radiator could be plugged up.
It is not likely air or bleeding, because VW engines don't need bleeding and don't trap air. You check the head gasket by running a pressure test. Replace the reservoir cap with the pump and gauge, pump it up, see if it holds pressure, and see if the gauge oscillates under running load. It should hold pressure and not oscillate under load.
