      Just my two cents on the issue.

      I don't have a VAGCOM, so I can't scan for codes. The temp sensor had been replaced. It is the green one. The lower hose is very cold. I suppose part of the reason I am not overheating by much is the...
    7. Please help. Water pump, thermostat, or air bubble

      I'm going blind searching all the forums and elsewhere. So many differing opinions. Figured I'd start a specific one to my car and see what consensus was before I started throwing money at it.

      Then the fans weren't...

      What am I looking at/what's wrong?

      So, I dropped a nut down the back of the engine and as I felt for it, I happened across a loose bolt. I finally got a better look at it and it appears to be one of the three bolts that attaches the...

      Aha! So I guess the heavy duty bushings are not orientation sensitive? I had heavy duty in before, but one started peeling away from the metal casing. I though it might be because I didn't orient it...
