Need some advice.

basically my car is overheating. for the past couple of weeks whenever i sit (engine running) or in slow moving traffic the temp goes up to around 80 before out of the blue shooting up to 100+, the stop light then flashes and doesnt go down again untill i either turn the engine off and leave for 20mins or when i start driving properly again. what worries me as well is that the fan doesnt kick in. ive changed the fuse on the fan, checked oil and also checked the water/coolent level all of which are fine (replaced fuse just incase) but still getting the problem. i personally cant see it being the fan as ive had the car for 4 years and the temp always stays around the 70-80 mark without the fan coming on.

the fan itself hasnt seized and theres no leaking of the water or oil no tapping from the engine or anything either. so im a bit stumped.

the car is long over due for a service so would this have any effect on it?

any advice would be greatful + rep waiting too for the one with the answers lol. cheers

maybe its the fan temp sens..i had an citroen a while back and the local dodgy garage got me to spend out on reconditioned head and gaskets etc. and it was this all along!
#2
my dad had the same problem and ended up fitting his own switch to turn the fan on,good luck and hope you get it sorted

i thought this however when its been hotter (weather wise) the temp has always stayed around the 70-80 mark without the need of the fan

i would imagine that the wind running through the car engine bay would keep the engine cool to some degree not sure..

although i do like mardyass idea, you could have a big red emergency button, flip the switch and hear the fan roar on :thumbsup:

My man won't touch french car's.

Could be the water pump or as masterruckus says the sensor... Peugoets are prone to have problems with these.. Does the diagnostics light come on as well? THIS would probably be the place to look or even ask the question.. Helped me out before now..

A long shot, but what state is the oil in? When was it last changed? It may be thick & gunky & not circulating through the engine block properly.

i had a 306 with a similar problem. a wire on the engine had come off. costs about £20.00 to replace. common fault with these motors.
#13
Disconnect the fan from the temp sensor and bridge it with a bit of wire to make sure it runs, if so get a multimeter and record the temp sensor resistance at cold and then at hot. If it doesn't change you've found the problem:thumbsup:

As shengis said,

Before ya start tho, make sure it's the right fan, might have been replaced before ya got it.

The blades should push air over the engine not pull it away.

I don't have any experience of Peugots, bu the problem could be a thermostat stuck closed. If you trace where the top radiator goes back to the engine, that will be the thermostat housing. Usually 2 or 3 bolts to remove it. If you take the themostat out and it is closed, boil up a saucepan of water and drop it in. If it is still closed it is stuck and is the cause of the overheating as it is not allowing hot water from the engine into the radiator.

If you are driving and the car starts to overheat, put the heater on full blast at the hottest setting. This will help cool the engine as the heater is just another (small) radiator. You'll probably have to open the sunroof/window to let the hot air out or you'll be rather warm!

I am having the same issue with my 05 Peugeot. What would you say would be the best way to resolve it.
I have been told to have an individual switch to turn on and off the fan when needed. How easy would this be to do?
Also with regards to it possibly being the temperature sensor or an electrical fault again how easy might this be to do myself?
Thank you

crikey a blast from the past this thread.

no longer got the 206 but mine had numerous problems, head gasket gone, radiator blocked & the ECU had cracked which all contributed to this fault, the latter being the main one.
#22
Just a bit ahaa
Yeah since I've got mine all I've heard is bad things. The garage did mention something about my head gasket but I do t be replacing it. Think I might just try and sell it off cheap and get something a bit better. Thanks for the help

Still a more reliable car than a French Car....
