UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.
If the engine does not appear to be over heating at all with this issue here when it occurs and this occurs randomly this can be a fault with a faulty engine coolant temp sensor needing replaced.I have seen the engine coolant temp sensor fail in the past before causing intermittent issues like this here.Having a code reader/scan tool plugged into your vehicle to read out fault codes will help identify if this is the cause here for sure if a code has set for this issue.It may display a fault for the engine coolant temp sensor which will help identify that it is the cause here.
It is possible a cylinder head gasket leak is the cause as well but usually this would occur all of the time if this was the case.
I would have the fault codes checked first and engine coolant temp sensor tested.If a fault is found with it then it will need replaced but if this all checks out o.k. then I would have a block test done to see if a head gasket is an issue here.Most shops can do the block test in less then an hours time to see if there is a leaking head gasket issue.
