Hi. It is a well known problem on VWs you need to let all the air out , your car should have a valve to do this but if you can not find it try leaving the antefrezze cap of and watch for bubles coming out the water ( with the engine runing ,, ) cold

I would suggest an automatic transmission flush before I did anything else.

SOURCE: won't go into gear when running, clutch rattle sound.

I would say it is your clutch (In your case it more than likely the throw out bearing if you hear rattle sound.) with the amount of miles and the year of the vehicle. Clutch plates, just like brake pads, eventually wear out. Consider yourself fortunate that you have gone this far without having to replace it.

SOURCE: on Load the working temperature rises

at 100 degrees c the aux fan will come on. Make sure that fan is working properly and also that your fan clutch is working properly.If this is happening with the a/c on there is an updated temp switch for aux fan operation on the receiver drier. It should be red in color. The temp is going to rise under different loads but that is a bit extreme in my opinion. Make sure you have a 50 50 mix of water and coolant and that the rad. cap seal is o.k. assuming the rest of your cooling system is in proper working order.

My 1991 nissan terrano overheats going up hill. I have replaced radiator. thermostat and water pump. Any suggestions welcome

if it has a viscous fan hub( fan clutch ) check it for correct operation
what you describe indicates that the fan is not travelling as fast as it should to be pulling air through the radiator
other indications are temp rising at stop lights , temp rising in slow moving traffic or in your case loaded ( going up hill)with higher engine rpm

Hi, I have a micra k13, 2011 model, I am wondering where the pollen/cabin filter is? can you please give me detailed instructions (to make it easy for a girl to do this). Thanks :) Sarah

from experience most cars that have cabin filters have them located on top of the blower motor behind the glove box
to get to them the glove box is removed
