There is no sure way to know until you take the thermostat out and check it. After removing the thermostat, you can test it by submerging it slowly, with a tool in boiling water. You can then see the thermostat open up. If it does, this is not your overheating cause. If it does not, you need to purchase a new one. Install the new one and you will find out if that was the problem.

How do you change a thermostat on a 96 jetta?

i have never done a thermostat swap on a 96 jetta but i would assume it is about the same as any other vehicle as they appear to be pretty universal. just locate the thermostat housing which will be metal and usually in a bubble shap to give clearing for the thermostat. then carefully open the thermostat housing as not to damage it wich might cause leaking. remove the thermostat from the housing and be sure to remove all the rubbery sealer from around the inside of the housing. a putty knife usually does the trick well. then put a new seal in and the new thermostat and replace the housing over it. make sure everything is secure and start the vehicle. squeez the hoses while you're vehicle is running to make sure you have flow and the hoses are warm. check the housing for leaks. and make sure the vehicle isn't overheating.
