I would have thought this was pretty basic stuff and I would like an answer. Thank you.
I find this quite unbelievable.This is not a complex matter and you can find no one to address it.
I want an answer and will not accept a withdrawal of my charges.
Hi Greg, thank you for your helpful response. I would just like to clarify one point. I thought the electric cooling fan should run on for a period of time after the hot engine has been switched off so that the engine gets the benefit of continued cooling for a period after being switched off.You seem to be saying the electric cooling fan should NOT run on at all after the engine has been switched off when hot. I am pretty sure that until recently, the electric cooling fan used to run on for a period of time after switching off the engine, and would then cut out automatically after a few minutes. The fault then developed and it would run on and on until it exhausted the battery. Your advise is much appreciated. Tim
Greg, final email from me.I believe the engine is reaching the kind of temperature where the electric cooling fan should stay on for a period of time after the engine is switched off - but it isn't. Is that likely to be a fault with the new temperature sensor or a relay somewhere? I plan to change the thermostat and replace the water pump as the engine is a beaut and I don't want to damage it. The radiator has been flushed but I will check that over again. If the needle of the temperature gage is in the mid/normal position, should the electric cooling fan run when I switch off the engine? Thank you for your help. Tim
