engine heats up very fast in the morning , other GTIs take at least 3 min to reach quarter water temp level meter reading, mine takes only 1 min . after approx 20 min my engine will lose power. it's even worse in hot weather condition in the afternoon .

coolant ok radiator no problem fan also no problem thermostat also no problem fan switch also no problem , meter no problem . so what is the problem?

Try to flush ur radiator 2-3 times & replaced the coolant again. This should help to rectify the problem. :)

Maybe you might have the typical Proton Meter problems. Mine sometimes jump up to the max of the temperature gauge. But still ok.
Then the fuel gauge sometimes after pump full tank still shows Empty.

mr solicitor..

is your thermostat working well? what bout engine compression loss?
are your top set gaskets in perfect condition? u sure no leakage? have
u gone through engine & radiator pressure tests? any smoke from your
car? what bout your aircond compressor, its connected to pulleys from
your engine, if it is faulty it might give a slight drag to engine causing
heat & temp rise.... how did u service your radiator? open top & bottom
together or one side only during servicing? how did they merge back
both the top & bottom pieces of your radiator to the core? like i've said
earlier, radiator pressure test? what bout cavity on your water pump
blades? your water passages inside your block.. are they stucked?
hairline crack on block? oh no! time to change car? :lol:
