The car keeps over heating , when driven for more han 10 min
When i drive the car for a few minutes sits at 90 degrees c for few minutes say 15 then starts to over heat so i have to turn on internal fans to cool engine
i have checked coolant levels all ok it has been flushed twice, garage have tried to look at this but they say fan is not kicking in when it should, any suggestions would be welcome.

I suspect the thermostatic switch ,this switch reads the temperature of the coolent and sends a signal to the fans to kick in if faulty it will not work .get it tested or replace hope this helps you .adrian

Sounds like your catalic converter is trying to stop up. When you drive it this heats up and causes your car to vapor lock and quit running you let cool down and it will start back and run for a while. You can take it to a muffler shop and they will check it for free. This could be any number of issues but this is where i would start.Best of luck to you, Thank's for using Fix Ya.
When your car is warm, everything is at its maximum expansion. Sounds like an overheating issue. But again I am not there to inspect and diagnose it. It could be several things. Winter driving keeps your engine way cooler than summer heat
New Bolts Must Be Used
Step 1 : Tighten bolts 1-10 to 65 ft lbs
Step 2 : Tighten bolts 1,3,5,7 and 9 85 ft lbs
Step 3 : Tighten bolts 1 - 10 Clockwise 90 degrees
Step 4 : tighten bolts 1 - 10 an aditional 90 degrees
Step 5 : tighten bolts 1 - 10 an aditional 90 degrees making this a total of three times in a row 90 degrees.
Step 6 : Tighten bolts 11 - 15 to 18 ft lbs
Step 7 : tighten bolts 11 - 15 to 23 ft lbs
I asume your wanting the head torque.
on GM vehicles they still use clutch fans and when sitting at an idle for a while the fan is not pulling enough air through the radiator and condensor so therefor the a/c starts to put out warmer air and the coolant temp. will rise a little bit. You could try replaceing the fan clucth and see if that helps any.
