Fan not always coming on 2.0 TS
Before i start, the car has a new rad and new thermostat fitted some months ago.
Went out for a drive in the high temps we have today and it started to read close to and over the marker past 90 deg, 110 i think? Even when cruising along it stayed hot. Stopped, fan came on, all ok. Did it again a few times. Got home, tried the brdging of resistor trick, no change. Resistor looks intact, as checked against pics on here.
Let it warm up to over 90, fan kicked in, engine cooled. Sat there for a while, a/c on or off, fan comes on and cools etc. Switched off, let it warm up again...90 100 110+....NO FAN!!
Waited a while engine off, tried again. fan on at 90 ish...tried again, no fan! 110 +.
Low speed fan doesn't seem to exist, and sometimes the high speed neither, as you can deduce.
PLenty of oil, water and coolant. A/c fine, hot air fine, no warning lights
