Big overheating problem today! HELP!
If anyone happened to be at the main set of lights in Aintree today at around 4pm.... that was my red 146ti with steam bellowing out from under the bonnet.
It was stop/start traffic and the temp needle was rising dangerously towards the 120 mark. Managed to get it on the side of the road to investigate. The expansion tank was boiling over spraying water everywhere. I'm not in the know with how cooling systems operate.... The hose leading to the radiator was red hot, certainly felt no water running through it, and the cooling fan never switched itself on. Does the water overheating suggest that the radiator is failing or what? I did lose a large amount of water, perhaps some kind of blockage somewhere?
Any help would appreciated, and a preventative measure would be good!
