Been looking through the history i have for the car when i bought it. Had a new radiator supplied and fitted by Red Motori in Blandford Dorset in April 2005. It has only covered 30,000 miles since so should be ok. The rad price before fitting on the reciept was £160 + vat so im assuming its a good one.
I have fitted a new genuine alfa thermostat. When i fitted that i flushed through the cooling system 3 times and refilled with new antifreeze. this was only a month ago.
No reciept for water pump so ill assume that hasnt been replaced so a possibility i guess.
As soon as i get a dry day im gonna check the temperature senders and clean connection etc...! is it right there are 2 on the V6?
I have only been able to hear one speed on the fans which kicks in at about 95-100 i think. So could be the stage 1 isnt working! Is there a effective way to test this on the V6?
I have seen a few threads with regard to the Maf sensor suggesting that the warning light could be coming on from time to time putting the car in safe mode(so to speak) because of the slightly high running temp. Anyone know if this likely to be true?
