Welcome to just answer,

Can you tell me if the engine management light is on or a "service vehicle soon" ?

service vehicle soon comes on service car myself

Thanks for that,

"The "service vehicle soon " (SVS) on the newer Vauxhalls is not a general service reminder i.e. oil and filter change it is meant to direct you to a dealer/garage for a diagnostic test, they used to use the SVS symbol (car with a spanner).

The probable cause will be a faulty electronic thermostat, these can stick open or closed and if stuck closed can cause engine damage, this is backed up by the cooling fan running.

So, get the fault codes read and you will probably see a code for either the thermostat circuit or coolant flow low circulation.

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc.
