Hey everybody, i need some help. I was driving my jetta on the highway when my temperature gauge went all the way up to the hottest temperature. The car didnt overheat though. I brought it to the mechanic up the block, he replaced a sencer and i think the thermastat, but that didnt fix the problem. Now, they don't know whats wrong with it. Instead of bringing it to volkswagen to pay a fortune, can someone please help me?

Try to find someone with VAG-COM in your local area. You might be throwing "soft" codes. It would be cheaper than buying parts to see if that fixes it.
a vag com isnt as common as you make it out to be, from what i know about it you need a dedicated lap top and about 1g to lay down just for the software (they have cheaper versions but the one that does it all is about a grand)
wrong. The software is free.
The cable from is $350 for the one I got. It works on all OBDII cars.
I have let people borrow cables and just download the software to their laptop. If you don't want to buy one, you could check for someone local here
