I'm sure there's a dating joke in there somewhere lol


Thing is women and cars are just about the same you will have problems with both of them but at the end of the day the car still won't answer you back making it a safer bet.

There are electronic temperature sensors that take readings of the current state of affairs, these signals go to the ECU and the ECU will only intervene when the coolant temperature or in your case lack of it means that the pre determined safe maximum is reached lets say 100 degrees, the ECU will then switch the rad fan on until the temperature is safely below the desired temps, the thermostat is a mechanical part and is built to move at a certain temperature, when the engine is started cold the thermostat will stay closed to allow the engine to warm up quicker helping with efficiency and performance, once the thermostats opening temperature is reached it will open the system up and allow a flow through the rad aswell to maintain the operating temperature, on a well running and leak free system the engine fan will very often only come on if parked in traffic or direct sunlight at an engine idle due to the lack of airflow through the radiator, the only other reason for the fan to run would be the use of Air conditioning in which case the fan will run continuously until the AC is turned off. I have excelled myself there. :D

Ignore the overflow note that's a lie, take that as a return to the resovoir, there is also a small pipe on the ford system which is like a bleed return to eradicate air in the system.

I just can't get excited over Vauxhalls full stop, The New mondeo will surely wipe the floor with the insignia, I would have said that sync2 is about the best mainstream in car system right now.

Check the coolant level under the bonnet, with the wet carpet and temperature issues it sounds all the world like the heater matrix has leaked coolant all over your inside.


#427447 I'm Thinking Of A Little Upgrade.

You wouldn't believe how silly the quote I get for the Metal is, insurance group 17, 134hp vs insurance group 10 and 80 hp well the Metal comes in 180 quid cheaper, I'm very confused right now. HAHAHAHA

#366080 Fiesta Mk7 Cooling Fan Issue?

Posted by Nathan_M on 20 May 2014 - 10:52 AM

Stop start in hot weather will make the coolant hotter as the air flow through the radiator is next to nothing, I'm not sure what the engine temps have to be with diesels to engage the fan with a petrol it's usually 95-105, if it's a hot day in stop start either suffer with hot air blowing at you with the windows down or use your air conditioning as it forces the fan to run no matter what, and a good hard blast on an A road or dual carriageway will not do any harm at all anyway.

#335113 Clutch Ajustment

Posted by Nathan_M on 22 February 2014 - 07:41 PM

They're both common concerns on the fiesta the gearbox is to blame and my fiesta that shares the same box is similar best fix for the reverse issue is to push the clutch to the floor push the stick into 3rd then straight through to reverse it slows the gearbox down, you may also find that the clutch bite sits higher up the pedal travel all of which are normal for Ford's hydraulic clutch system and gearboxes.
