Peurgot 206LX--1.4 petrol. X REG...31.10.2000 .engine overheating? Worse when standing ( coolant Ok )


Some things to check - make sure that the radiator fan is coming on at the right temperature. It might not be turning on at all due to a blown fuse or a bad fan relay. Also, when the engine is up to temperature make sure the thermostat is opening up properly and be sure the radiator itself is not clogged. When the engine begins to overheat, turn the heater on (full heat, highest blower speed) and see if you get hot air and the engine temp begins to come down. This will tell you of the coolant is circulating properly.

Cooling fan staying on


I'm pretty sure the radiator fan on these is controlled by a thermostat and will therefore normally operate only when required hence coming on and turning off at will. It is also not unusual for the fan to remain on after turning the engine off. If you sit and wait a few minutes after turning off the engine the fan will shut down eventually.

this car is 21 yrs old and well past its sell by date ,now is this clear rad container your refering to ? is it the over flow bottle or the radiator header tank If you do have a problem with the head gasket then it may pay you to trade it in quick and buy a nice peugeot diesel manual and reduce your carbon footprint and save a lot of money in fuel as well with 70mpg .Your dealing with a big petrol engine here in this car and lots of things could be wrong and going wrong owing to the vehicles age and their come a time when you have to give it some euthanasia and send it to the great motorway in the sky unless you have a bottomless pit of a wallet
