Unhappy high temp problem.

My car 2006 Passat, once I had to replace the two radiator fans (got a cheaper generic) that worked but seemed always staying on longer than it should after the engine is off. The other day a plastic piece of the front air intake (small cover) fell down and stopped the larger fan, I noticed something wrong because the temperature went up drastically; since then when Iím stuck in traffic the temp goes up and seems to me that the fans arenít going as fast as before, is this possible? What could have happened?
Donít want to take it to the dealership because Iím afraid it will cost me the value of this 10 year old car. Please help!!!!!!

Its hard to say what's wrong over the web.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing.
