YES, IT'S A LOT! But I need some help. This car was my moms before she handed the keys to me. While she had it (and the reason she gave it up) was because it kept overheating. She got a 01' jetta. It sat for maybe a year until I realized I fell in love with you... "little Blue"(Lol). IT'S STILL OVER HEATING! I have read the other couple subjects. Like "95GT Overheating...." And "overheating.... almost". I can safely rule out the heater core being damaged, It was replaced before she discontinued using the GT. although it is possible for it to be clogged. I will attempt flushing out the block and radiator tommorow. I will also check the lower/upper Rad hoses tommorow too to see if I get any results.Im Almost sure it's not the WP because, I heard from somewhere/someone that it would be squealing or making some kind of noise to let me know it's done it's time-nothing, no sound or anything. All I hear is the sweat, sweat sound of that 1.8 at idle . Im sure it's NOT the head gasket. I would be losing oil and burning it. same level every time i check. No leakage in to the engine from Anti-freeze. She did say that she took it to a mechanic and they said it has a cracked rad. Last time I checked, wouldn't it leak if that's the case? Could the T-stat be the prob? I have no clue when that was last replaced. As for the "Puffing smoke on a warm sunny day", it doesn't do that. Any idea guys? This is the biggest issue with my Scorty, It runs fine if it actually could run with out super heating my hood! Also, Would it getting no cooling cause It to rev in the 1500-1800 Rpm's when I give it a bit of gas at first start? It idle's real high at sometimes. even gets to 2000 sometimes. Is that part of the overheating issue? Only time when it idle's at 800-1000 is when its at (NORMAL).... about the M After a couple kills and restarts. (because it needs time to cool down from overheating... Any idea? THANKS A LOT Feoa Community (in advance) for the help! THANKS FOR READING!!
