Right can someone point me in the right direction?
Temp gauge on my 156 has been non-stop the last two days when in traffic.
Happily sits at 90 when on the motorway, but within a minute of sitting in some traffic i can see the needle start to rise to the point where the red light comes on. So far come on twice. As soon as we start to move the temp drops.
I've parked the car and the fan kicks in, Coolant is topped up. so is it a rad on it's way out or something else???
Also, the fan only runs with the key in the ignition. When i take it out the fan stops even when the temp is off the scale and when i put the key back in after a couple of minutes the fan starts again even without the engine running as it is showing the temp still over 90.... is this normal as i'm pretty sure every other car i've had ran it's fan when needed even without the enigine running/key in the ignition.
Thanks in advance
