Engine Cooling problem
2000 Volkswagen Passat 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 90000 miles
I have started experiencing an engine overheating problem. After driving for about 5 mins, the temperature shot to 250 and the 'stop engine' light and alarm came on. From that time onwards I had to start and stop many times until I reached home as the 'stop' and 'check coolant' alarms kept coming soon after I started. The coolant was almost boiling, but the coolant and engine oil levels are fine. An additional information - just before this problem occured, the A/C didnot start for a couple of times when I pressed the switch, although later it was working fine.
Any suugestions as to what might be the problem.
