View Full Version : Coolant/operating issue

11-06-2010, 11:04 AM
so ive searched for about a half hour and seen some stuff,
99.5 1.8t a4 quattro
coolant fan, belt driven always turns no matter what.
My temp gauge does not move AT ALL (i could sit there all day and rev at 5000 rpm and no change) not that i would

1 questions obviusly i think a thermostat
but why does my belt driven fan always turn, ALWAYS turn no matter what, when i start the car in the moring its turning are all AEBs like that?. had a 18t b5 passat and it always heated up fiine in the winter. im lost with this

guage does work cause in the summer she is dead straight up and down on the temp gauge
coolant is hot,well feels hot through hoses.
it was 28* outside today

Mine did that and it was the thermostat I would change that first. It also may be the temp sensor but if the gauge worked in the summer its prolly the thermostat
