yes most likely thermo... but theres always the possibility its the heater core b/c when i had my 92 golf i went through all the possible things to get heat and the last and most expensive thing to replace was the heater core... hopefully its only a thermo for u... good luck
yeah if you put your defrosters on and start to get a film on the windshield and the heater makes a funny smell, that is your heater core. those are a bitch and expensive so lets hope its not that. i would say thermo but i am not 100% on that! hope it gets all better!
Thanks for the replies. Maybe the recall hasn't been done. I noticed that there was a recall on the heater cores. If I'm doing the thermostat, is it much more dificult to do the timing belt and water pump at the same time? Thanks!
