Answers :

Well, is the cooling fan working as it should? It should kick in at about 190F, if it doesn't the engine temp sensor may be faulty. You should also check the radiator, it can be clogged inside and outside. You can clean it up by disconnecting both hoses and running your garden hose through it until water comes out clear. \015\012Remember to replace all fluid with proper VW coolant.\015\012
\015\012Also clean the outside of the radiator as tree leaves, dirt and bug on the outside reduce performance greatly, clean it with a brush and a low pressure garden hose until you can see through it.
