If your 200T is similiar to the 5kT, then there is a secondary coolant
pump.  Look for a small can motor mounted in two rubber rings, with two
hoses connected.   May have been moved, but look on top of the ABS acutator
head, to the left+behind of the radiator fan.  It runs after the car has
been shut off to help cool things down(esp. the turbo, though some have
said they don't think it makes a difference...most of them were racers, who
didn't have to deal with hot turbos getting parked in the garage, or with
stop+go traffic)

Hope this helps,
