I’m hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction
I bought this as a cam chain guide failure, put a recon head in it, new chain kit/head gasket etc and it’s running great. Half way through the job I found why the chain guides had prematurely failed - it had got HOT...

Hi, I've been having a problem with the electric warning light coming on at or over 80'c
i know the fan works, it comes on at 90'c normally - I've checked all the relays and the fuses and they seem to be okay, I've wiped the fault codes several times - but soon as the engine gets to 80ish it...
Hi all, grateful for some help.
Had a radiator leak (fracture in the plastic side panel), which then led to a failure of the waterpump on my 2007 Zafira 1.9cdti Life.
So, I replaced the radiator and the water pump, and replaced the cambelt as well.
Took it for a run today and all seems fine...
Hi all thanks in advance for any help, my Vectra fan is coming on as soon as i start the engine and staying on...Changed the temp sensor on the thermostat housing still doing it! Been told the housing has a sensor inside? Do i need to change full housing? Is it a big job?. Thanks.
My uncle has a 2004 Meriva 16v. The light with the spanner is illuminatef on his instrument panel and there is also the fault code p1483, which we believe relates to the fan. He has checked his fuses and changed his relays but still the code is there. The relays he changed were the...

I have a Vauxhall Astra mk4 03 reg. The fans not switching on when car gets hot? I've been told it's the relay? And also been told it's the tempreture switch? Which is it? I'm confused... Also car smokes when started up and also when the cars hot? What could this be? Can anyone help please.
My 07 plate Signum has had a fairly longstanding problem where it had been taking up to 10 mins from start for the blower to come on. Once on it worked fine including the 4 various speeds and temp control.
Then 2 weeks ago it got 'stuck' working at a constant speed (although temp can still be...

First and biggest problem is that my radiator fan stopped working, car heated up and I noticed a leak at lower hose on water pump(if im correct), although i think that the problem is in...
Good Morning everyone,
I am at a loss.
The electric windows and cooling fan has stopped working on my MK4 1.6 petrol Vauxhall astra.
I have checked all the fuses in the both fuse boxes.
Does anyone have any solutions or ideas to what the problem might be?
Hi, sometimes after a short ride I hear the engine fan come on when I'm out the car.
The temperature gauge stays at the middle so I'm not sure if it's over heating?
It's had a recent service however I still hear this noise, not all the time just sometimes.
Thank you :)
P.S I took the car for...
