Hi

Recently the Cooling fan on my ford focus TDCI has been coming on even though the Temp gauge on the dash is showing what I'm led to believe is the perfect temp for the car( Just below half way)... The fan stays on after the engine has been turned off for about a minute... This occurs if I drive for 20 miles or even just 2-3 miles...

Also the average MPG is now only 31.8 MPG round town this seems a little low for a 06 Diesel engine... does the fan running all the time cause the alternator to work harder therefore cause for higher fuel consumption?

Could the problem be the thermostat or Temp Sensor?? Some also mentioned could be the EGR valve?

Any advice would be appreciated..

Thank you

Hi are you using the a/c when the fans run on also there was a recall on the focus cooling fans but I think it was just the 1800 diesels that were affected but might be worth cheking with your local dealer to see if it is outstanding on your car.

Alright,

Yeah I know that the A/C activates when setting blowers to windscreen this acts as a d-mister... But even when the blowers are turned off the fan runs.... I have even taken out the A/C relay just to see if the A/C was faulty somehow but the cooler fan still runs like I say for about 1 minute after the car ignition has been turned off... I'm pretty sure this is the reason why i'm only getting 31.8 MPG

Hi again,

I have just been advised that by another site that I might have a choked up turbo pipe which could be causing the turbo to run hotter than normal.... hense the reason the coolant fan is running all the time.... do you think this is possible and what kind of cost do you think i will be facing if it is a choked up turbo pipe?

Does the fan come on as soon as you start the engine?

iv been reading up and I reckon I might get diognostic run... hopefully this will show the problem.
But I'm leaning more towards Coolant sensor, or EGR Valve going on the symptoms of Rough Idle - Noisy engine at accelerations and increased fuel consumption and coolant fan running alot

I have similar issue - fan runs a lot even in cold weather conditions, but my engine temperature is not going any higher than 1/4 of dash gauge - so I presume it around 70. I had my car connected to diagnostic tool in local ford garage and it did not indicate any errors. I'm planing to change thermostat and temp sensor tomorrow and will see if it make any difference.

MPG is not good either.

Please note that my car has factory fitted DPF but it has been checked in Ford and no issues found.
