  2. Tranny help 97 gti vr6

  3. Fans don't cool engine

    Ill try again since im replacing all hoses and put 160f back in if that don't work then it is what it is . Luv my vw such a fun hobby lol
  4. Fans don't cool engine

    Replaced aux water pump when first got car had no heat in cabin and while old won turned on it wasn't pumping water and that's why the heater core water pump thermostat and all the sensors were replaced. Think i will try putting back in the 160f thermostat and see the only thing left is a weak upper hose or radiator itself.
  5. Radiator fan problem

    Yes did fan test all checks out ok. And water pump is new and working. Problem is fans don't cool engine to shut off I guess new radiator i don't know only changes done is thermostat from 160f to a 180 f stock one.and the front grill
  6. Engine runs at idle fans come on but engine temp rises to 210 and holds but doesn't cool car down to shut off . Replaced fcm temp sensors water pump heater core did a combustion test so either its the radiator a bad weak upper radiator hose or one of the sensors is still bad?? I did put in a 180f thermostat replacing the 160f one would this cause it? But 180f is oem. Stumped!!
  7. Radiator fan problem

    Would the thermostat make the difference??came with 71c and replaced with 180f?? i have replaced the three sensors and one on radiator even replaced the fcm and the heater core (car had no heat when i got it) All thats left is either one of the sensors came bad ?or the radiator? Replacing all hoses top hose is weak would that cause engine to get a little hot for fan to come on? By vcds the fan comes on at 197 but then engine voes up to 210 while idleing and holds but with fans on the whole time.
  8. Radiator fan problem

    Do you know of vag com would detect this? I have vag com but so new to vag com so would have to figure out how? so far only clear codes and throttle adaption i have done.
  9. On a mk3 vr6 once car gets to temp radiator fans kick on and stay on i believe since no matter the weather when i come to a stop they are on and don't go off till car is off and stay on for five minutes like they should but i dont think they should be on the whole time after car is warmed up??need fixed i dont want to have to buy new fans😔i have unplugged the yellow 4 pin sensor in coolant flange and fans turn off so it is working i guess .any help os appreciate so much.

  11. 97 gti vr6 Bought car and the heat sucks so replaced blend doors and a new heater core just because i was in the dash that far . Now have heat but luke warm and some temp issues so replaced thermostat now having same issue with luke warm heat untill i rev up to 2 grand then i get really hot heat let of gas and back to luke warm . So i turned on a/c and same thing cold at idle then rev to 2 grand and super cold air . So now thinking water pump ?? Car does not overheat never has i also replaced temp sensor. Water pump does not leak . Notsure what is the problem is has to be water pump or a huge as air pocket any help? Thanks michael
