  • Is this normal?

    Hi,

    Recently noticed that my engine fan comes on after literally 5 minutes of normal driving. Guessing the hot weather may contribute to this but noticed the overspill tank going mental aswell after such a short period of time. Any thoughts?

    And on a side note, anyone know a cure for squeeky brakes?

    Thanks

    I am no expert mate but i would say you have a problem there & would get it to vx dealership to be checked out. My corsa fan ONLY ever comes on if my temp reaches approx 101 usually when sat still in traffic for a while & never noticed it under normal driving conditions!

        Hi, in my experience the fan kicks in about about 96, if you have driven the car for a period about 30 mins and then left for about 10 to 20 mins on start up the fan will kick in due to the HOTweather ...

              do you have climate control smiffy? if i have mine turned on it comes on every few minutes and if i turn if off it hardly ever comes on. My fan has also started to make more noise recently and sounds like its spinning faster, vaux just said its because of the warmer weather and it spins at maximum speed. It only started doing it after it went in for a service so not sure if there talking nonscence.

                No I don't mate. Ive literally just done a 4 minute journey and pulled up and fan was on full whack. Previous to this the car has been parked up for 3 hours

                  What are your coolant levels like? Sounds like radiator related, maybe leak or similar.

                  Book in at dealers and get it looked at
