overheating

  1. MKIV GTI
    Im in deep guys. got a 2001 gti (145k miles)on my hands and it was overheating when idling for over 10 mins or so but when im normally driving it wudnt and my fans didnt seem to turn on when they were supposed to. so i went to a VW dealership to get a diagnostic and this is what they told me...
  2. MKV GTI
    I've noticed that my radiator fans never turn on, and the other day, I was sitting in the car (the car was idling in park) nd the temp needle slowly started to rise. Of course when I drive normally, the temp stabilizes at 190. Any ideas why my radiator fan wont turn on?
