156 when hot dies completly
hi guys, recently got a 2001 156 1.8 twin spark, drove 255 miles from buying it,motorway driving,temp was 70/90 drove with heaters on. then stopped at roundabout and it was dead ? thought petrol as light had come on 2 mins earlier.got fuel started all good. but final 40 miles home had to keep it reving at junctions,now the engine sign is lit up.
2 days later take it out temp hits 70 car totally dies,leave it for 15 mins it starts but when hits 70 again it dies.
got it home leave it idle hits 70 ish again dies but radiator fan never came on ? changed the 50a relay and little red relay same again, now i have checked fan with battery and it works, apart from making a manual switch what do i need to do,
its turning me mad !! thankyou euan
