2004 Jetta GLI 1.8 turbo: Plugged cooling system

5

Asked by Aug 02, 2015 at 02:12 AM about the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car overheated last week. Got it home diagnosed it and found a cracked coolant flange. I  
replaced the coolant flange and temp sensor With genuine VW parts. The sensor clip
popped out and I found that the gasket was missing. I grabbed the old one, put it in and
things seemed fine. Got about a quarter mile from home and the temp steadily and the
car screamed at me again like the day it first blew. I couldn't find the new gasket in the
engine bay. I think the gasket got sucked into the system. Whoops. Now what do I do?

I doubt that the gasket got sucked into the engine. Try bleeding it again, sometimes air pockets are reluctant to get out.

    Electric cooling fans will not shut off. Do not have a fuse layout either. Any info would be great.
