Question Asked: Overheating, but cools down quickly?
February 21, 2009, 11:18 PM
My car started overheating (all the way into the red on the temperature gauge). Its got coolant in the resevoir, so it not that its short on coolant.
After a few minutes of driving, then the temp starts climbing, but then it goes back down for a bit, then raises up into the red.
What makes this really strange is it seems to cool down VERY fast. Like I can drive it again in 15 minutes as if it wasn't overheated.
Any thoughts on what this could be? Thanks

This car has served me well. Other people have told me they've had electrical problems with the Passat, but I've not had any.
