This is caused by coolant in the oil in most cases, the vapor reaches the air cleaner via the crankcase vent hose. Coolant in the oil indicates a major engine problem.

Could my caravan overheat due to a blocked airfilter and one radiator fan not working?

Quite possibly. Could also be thermostat, water pump, or radiator as well. Sounds like you need a new filter ASAP and to fix the fan. Then go from there. Also, is your radiator lowon water or antifreeze? That would do it too.

White smoke is water. Check you have a dry airfilter. Check no white mayo in the engine oil. Check water bottle is not filling up with engine exhaust. Check not overfilled oil.

P016B code

That error code means that the computer is having issues setting the trhrottle opening, it could be due a lot of things. First check the airfilter and the airfilter box. Clear the code and see if it comes back. If it does then it could be anything from a vacuum leak to a bad MAF sensor to a bad throttle position sensor

The radiator fan does not switch on automaticly when the car reatches max temprature. Tested the fan, it is wortrking when I unplug the censor on the airfilter housing. What has the censor in the airfilter...

Sensor in air filter is one of MANY that's connected to your cars computer. I suspect the sensor your looking for is aux fan sensor which is mounted on side of your radiator. It's a brass fitting with electrical connections coming from it.

Urgent system service fault message + reduce performance

This is like your engine check on other models. You should start by checking all your fluids. Transmission if automatic, brake fluid resivor, radiator, engine oil, and even your windshield wiper water. While your at it check your airfilter.You should be able to see white light coming through it while holding it up against the sun. If it is dark replace it.
The if all else fails reset yourcomputer. To do this you take the negative battery cable off. Then to drain any reserve electricty in the system turn your lights on and radio and heater and turn your ignition keyto the on position. Letthe car sit for 30 minutes and then turn everythingback off. Remember your key to off also. Replace the battery cable and start the car. See if light went out. I hope this helped, The Raz
