2000 Volkswagen GTI Q&A

2000 Volkswagen GTI Question: why do i lose normal engine temp while driving

if my gti is idleing it runs 195 when i drive the temp goes back to cold -

It sounds like the thermostat is stuck open. You will need to replace this first. I recommend using a thermostat from VW, not an aftermarket one. Also make sure the electric cooling fan is cycling and not just stuck as this will also lower the operating temperature. -
