I am no expert but I would suspect either a temp sensor on the rad is not working or a blocked hose? I have a 1.6tdi c-max and tow an Avondale van with no problems whatsoever so I would look at a cooling issue.
hi mate, thanks for replying. i had my car checked by a ford specialist shortly after posting, and there is apparently nothing wrong with it. there isn't a temp sensor in the rad, all done by engine manegement by a sensor on the cylinder head. the fan cuts in through 4 stages, and this is all working correctly. Ford technical's advice was quite surprising. they said to tell the customer (me) to change my driving style - i.e. back off the throttle on steep inclines.
If i could find something to fix / repair, i would crack on with it, but under all other driving conditions, the car is great, including towing on normal hills. regards john.
