SOURCE: Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop

I had the same problem two weeks ago. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper. Brought it into the shop. They changed out the themostat (under warranty). The service advisor said that the 2005 and 2006 Mini's had a problem with the themostat's.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan

Replace the temp control on this car, it should be electrical control not cables.

SOURCE: cooling temp sensor

Should be located on the lower intake on right or left toward the front. Two wires watch cause there's and air temp that might look the same.

If thermostat is stuck open will it make your engine cooling fan run constantly?


im assuming your speaking of the engines internal thermostat ? if this sticks open (not likely) then temp gauge on car will never reach operation temp and stay low on scale ( entire purpose of thermostat in first place) now if your coolant fan switch sticks closed (very likely) then your fan will run constantly and only shut off with the key


also another condition that makes them run more often is that engine temp gauge is over normal (showing) and this is an indicator that cooling system has a problem and needs service

I have a 02 Grand caravan that has new radiator, termostat, one new fan. the temp gauge goes up to max hot the drops right back down in seconds. what could be the problem?


it could be you have an air lock in the cooling system
remove the rad cap from the rad, start the engine and let it run until the coolant drops (add to fill it back up) or until the coolant boils out of the rad spout.

maybe pull the heat sensor. -replace it OR clean it off, reinstall it.

Why is My 04 PT Criuser running hot and there is coolant in the radiator ?


check your cooling fans make sure they are working, to do this start your engine and turn on the ac the cooling fans should be running, if it does the next thing to check is the temp sensors, to do this turn off the ac, while the engine is running keep an eye on your temp gauge if the dial is going up above normal or at the point where you say the engine is running hot check if the cooling fans are running,
1) if not running, cooling fan sensor is not working, replace
2)if running, thermostat is shut, the thermostat regulates the flow of coolant in the engine it is fully open at normal operating temp and close if coolant is cold, replace

My 1988 Oldsmobile toronado over heats while in park and running,what should I look for ?


Engine overheating when idleing is a clear indication that the fan is not working. If it is an electric fan check temp sensor /relay or seized fan motor. If it is a viscous fan hub drive replace the hub as it is locking up tro drive the fan when the engine gets hot. If the engine cools down when start moving it is certainly to be in this area that you should be looking. A viscous hub after you start cold and apply about 2000rpm should produce a lot of fan noise which will die away after a few minutes. If you have no noise a replacement may be in order

Radiator fan not stopping even when i turn off the car and remove the keys. this is leading to battery drain


Radiator fan is supposed to start working after the temp reaches a certain limit. And it is supposed to run til the temp reaches a certain lower limit. So when you switch off the engine and walk off the fans must be running to cool the water to that lower limit. Unless you seen that it runs well past that and does not stop at all. Does it start running when you start the engine? And runs throughout the time the car is running, which it should not. The relay seems to be out. It is this relay that controls the running of the fan. or the temp gauge. If the temp gauge is giving wrong temp then the relay has to keep working. Please check both, the relay and before that the temp gauge.

Car over heating when stopped in traffic but not when movin


Hi. the first test will be to open the hood and inspect the cooling fans. check to see if the fans are activating in intervals during the running cycle. if you don't see any fan rotation at all, this will confirm cooling fan failure and you will need to replace the fans or fan relay. Now, if the fans are running and the car is continuing to run hot when stopped, i would move to the next inspection point. the next problem spot will be a faulty water pump or faulty thermostat


If these two devices are malfunction in any way, it will cause the symptoms you are experiencing. at this point. the first thing is to make sure those fans are actually working.


Please rate and have a great day:)
