Volkswagen Golf Engine Overheating Due to Damaged Water Pump Impeller

(21 reports)

The engine may develop an overheating condition due to a damaged water pump impeller. Our technicians tell us the repair should include replacement of the water pump, thermostat, and flushing the cooling system.

Sometimes car won't warm up in cold weather, or the heat will be on full blast and suddenly the blown air will become cold. Technician said there was an issue with the water pump, and recommended replacing the water pump, thermostat, flushing the coolant and the timing belt. Said there was a package including labor for $1000 to replace those items. -

Car suddenly started leaking coolant, overheating occured, and I lost power steering. Taking it to a shop to have it fixed as it's too cold and I lack tools to do it at home. -
I just purchased the car from a little auto sales place, and now have to replace the radiator fan and water pump which is expecting about $600-$1000 of costs. Replaced the thermostat in a number one attempt but really it's issues with the water pump. -
