Good Day, :hi:

I drive a MK1 1.3 golf and recently she started overheating. We checked the entire cooling system and came to the conclusion that the Thermo switch was the issue. Replaced the thermo and everything was normal again, but yesterday she started the same issue again. This time she overheats faster, within 15 minutes! The water bottle boils over and water bubbles seep through the breather pipe where it is connect to the radiator.

I think it is the water pump, but I have people telling me it is the head gasket, so I am really not sure, because I can't see that the water and oil is mixing on the oil cap or the dip stick.

any tips or advice will be highly appreciated.
