      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Overheating When Idling

    No funny noises at all. I will check with the mechanic re changing the thermostat but I'm hoping he woulda of already checked that as it is a pretty obvious thing to do! When you check in the coolant tank when it is running you can see the coolant being pumped round fine.
  2. Overheating When Idling

    Hi don't know if anyone can help, I have an 04 plate 1.4l petrol fiesta lx. It has started overheating when stuck in traffic or sat on the drive running. The temp gauge in the dash doesn't increase (reads normal temp all the time) and the first thing u know about it is steam coming out of the bonnet from the coolant reservoir. It's been in the garage and they can't get to the bottom of it! The fan isn't kicking in when it should. It has had a new sensor put in and isn't the fuses and relay they are working fine. The fan does work as when the mechanic ran a diagnostic test and it worked. This only happens when the car is sat idling. Has anyone experienced this before and if so can you help!? The mechanic is stumped at present and only suggestion is to send the ecu off to be tested.
