Hey everybody
I have just acquired a 97 passat glx vr6 2.8l auto tranny and am having some issues im hoping someone can help me with

First the car will only start if cold or if you turn it off hot and then immediately start it again and thats not every time my temp guage on dash dont work but the digital oil temp works and am running at about 200 degrees sometimes gets up to 216 degrees yes im sure this is no bueno then if i stop at a light and dont keep my rpm's at about 1500 it will just die and then maybe it will start or maybe it wont so i always check the reservoir and sometimes its empty so i put a lil water in Like not even a half gallon and its full can see antifreeze and all so could this be the thermostat or the engine coolant temp sensor?
