I have a 2000 1.8T Jetta and all of a sudden (about 5 days ago) while I was driving it, the temperature went right up in a matter of minutes and the check coolant light started flashing.

My dad and I took a look at it and replaced the thermostat. Thinking that since it wasn't leaking any fluids that it wouldn't be a hose that was blown or the water pump.

Now its still doing the same thing. I drive for about 5 minutes and the tempertature climbs quickly, check coolant light comes on so I pull over and within 2-3 minutes the temperature is back down to normal.

Any ideas?
