UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
There are a couple causes of this that I commonly see. The first would be the fan temp switch on the bottom of the radiator, and the second is the cooling fan control module. Is yours a turbo model? Being in the US, I don't have access to repair data for your car specifically.
Ok. I would first suspect the coolant sensor at the bottom of the radiator. There are 2 sensors and the one at the bottom of the radiator is the one to address. Has that been replaced? Are there any codes present?
trouble codes.. You would need a scan tool to detect them. Also, which coolant sensor was replaced?
Ok. In that case, the problem is likely the cooling fan control module. Has that been checked?
On the US model, it is located on the driver side under the frame rail next to the blue vacuum reservoir.
I am going to open this question to the other experts. Being in the states, I have absolutely no information on your specific vehicle and I don't want to speculate and potentially cost you money on something that isn't necessary. If I knew that it was the same as our 2.8, then I would feel more comfortable.
