I'm 100 miles to the east near Williamsburg, KY. I'm a private individual that maintains a few VWs for friends. I've done Timing Belt changes on numerous TDI engines (diesels) and a few New Beetle gassers with the 1.8T engine. It's likely the plastic impeller on the water pump shaft is slipping when the coolant gets up to operating temp. I've seen this happen on several occasions.

I have no means to come get the car or would I want to travel that far to investigate.
