Thread: 2001 VW Jetta Engine Temperature Running Hot

    Default 2001 VW Jetta Engine Temperature Running Hot

    Hello
    I have a 2001 VW Jetta with 193,000 kms on it. I noticed when the engine was running (highway) for about half an hour, the engine temperature rose to 130 degrees and continued displaying this temperature. No warning lights on the dashboard came on. Also, when I parked the car, and turned off the engine, the fan that usually turns on when the engine is turned off did not come on.
    Does anyone know what the problem could be? And is this an expensive fix?
    Thanks so much!

    I am from Canada, and the normal operating temperature is 90 degrees, and it normally runs at 90 degrees, and now the temperature of the engine is running hotter.
    Does anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!

    Oh think yours is in celcius that'd explain it. Well we can't just say its this and problem solved. Start checking things off. That's pretty high mileage, have you had the water pump/thermostat/timing belt done? Also check the coolant. As far as the fan not turning on IDK, could be a relay issue or the fan. If you stick your hand down and turn the fan blades you should feel ni resistance whatsoever i believe. If there's any resistance the fan needs to be replaced.
