  • Fan kicking in???

    I have noticed a few times recently, and its not just after the bird hitting my air con condenser. That my engine fan kicks in awfully easilly. .... after around 15-20 mins of town driving and its really loud too. Basically when I bring up the BC diagnostic menu, it says the coolant is around 91-93 when the fan kicks in, and then goes down to 73 degress !!! Does this mean the thermostat is on its way out/ or is out??

    Sometimes it kicks in then other times it takes a bit longer to kick in. To me its got the symtoms of my Astra G that I had of a sticking thermostat

    All help appreciated

          mine does it too but everything seems to be okay, think they just run quite hot and are not really getting much time to cool down on short journeys

            Na not yet Rosco, you?? I am going to save up as don't have the cash to fix it this month. Aircon isn't much of a loss to me TBH right now. Screen still demists quick enough

            Thanks Craig ...... was running in town today for a constant 20minutes at slow speed and the fan never kicked in once Strange one.

              No i haven't ordered the condensor yet, am offshore just now, so will get it done when am home, got a few other things i want done aswell



              I thought mabee your fan was kicking in quicker due to the new condensor and fresh gas in it, but thats that theroy oot the window
              Could be the thermosat sticking, i use to test them (back in the day ) in a pan of boiling water as see how they open.
