      ok, so i flushed my coolant system, blew all the water out with high pressure air, check the t-stat in boiling water (working), checked the fan switch and fixed some wires, checked the fan, degreased the rad, refilled with G12, attempted to burp it (needs a little more), and still was over heating. but i found that the 2 little silver fan relays on the fan shroud... one was bad. replaced it, and now that fan comes on... NOW... the coolant floats around 190-210F (too high for all low temp coolant switches and t-stat) and the oil floats around 208-220F (also too hot for comfort)
      What else to do....
      I am going to be putting a remote oil cooler on soon. that will help the oil, but i am still banging my head about the coolant temps.

      208-220 is actually on the low side of oil temps on the g-lader! I pretty much run around 220-230 year round. Hence the importance to use full synthetic oil which will not break down as fast. In reality, oil temps over 200 are good as it burns off moisture that gets into the oil. Now if you were reaching temps from 250-300 on a regular basis it would be bad. At 300f oil tends to break down on mass.
      What coolant temps were you seeing before? 190-210 may be a little high, I wonder how clogged your radiator may be. I will see what mine runs as soon as I get her back on the road. My t-bolt clamps for the intercooler tubes showed up yesterday so I just need to swap out all the hose clamps for the new t-bolt clamps and I should be back in business.

      when i ran water though everthing with the hose to see it there was a clog, it was hard to tell if there was anything wrong, but when i ran the coolant flush in it, nothing gross came out, so i assume i got the most of it. i still think there is too much air in the line. i followed what the bentley told me to do as far as burping, but it didnt seem to do much. IDK. i need to get BRAND NEW fan relays, but they ar $90+ from the dealer. not worth it. SO... off the the pull and save i go.
      BUT atlease i am not over heating at a stop light any more.

      Newb here. Recently picked up an '08 GTI for my daughter. A bit more speed than she needs. So, I am going to use it as a loaner for my detail customers. So, today, I finished a three day paint correction on this little red demon.
      Fun car and now looks perfect!!!

      Mine marked up part of the road with coolant, found out my alternator bracket broke and the water pump wasnt spinning.
      Fixed that, now I just need to buy that BBM pulley and do the serp setup. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I have everything else!!
