Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

2 Answers

I have a 1998 1.8 16v Freelander when it gets to normal working temp, the water pushes back into the water bottle, then the fans goes on and then it is back to normal, if I disconnect the temp sensor plug the fans stay on, and then I havent got that problem. I fitted a new sensor.

We had a similar problem and fixed it by replacing the plastc overflow tank and cap. I think the old plastic tank system does not maintain cooling system pressure correctly. I replaced this about three months ago (myself for $100.00) and I have had no problems since.

Hi,lets start at the begining,resons for this can be,firmastat not working properly,fan switch not working properly so fan dose not switch on,waterpump not working properly so not pumping water around properly,radiater got sludge in it so is not cooling properly,or headgasket broken,
first start engine and wait for car to start up then when the tempreture gage gose up to normal running temp lisson for the fan if it dosnt come on proberly temp-switch for the fan,if fan dose come on switch engine off and check that the hoses to the rad are bouth hot,if that is ok,wait for the car to cool down a bit so you can take off the exspantion tank-cap put a cloth or some thing over the cap as there is a lot of presure and hot water,so be carfull not to burn yourself,
when done start car and look to see if the water is moveing around freely if so then the pump must be ok swich engine off,last one take of the oil-filler-cap and look at the oil it should be brown in coulor,if its a musterd coulor then it means the head-gasket has gone,well although ive sied all this thay have a tool on the market wich the garage use to pump presure in the water system wich shows up eney leeks,if you are loseing water apart from the bubbling water that comes out of the exspantion tank that will show it up,I wish you the best and hope its one of the miner jobs.

You have a clogged heater core that needs to be back flushed, or you have a blown head gasket that needs to be replaced.

The core pipes in your radiator may be blocked with particles of junk. There is no easy way to clear them other than to remove the top and bottom tanks of the radiator and push a rods through the individual pipes to push out the junk.
You could try back flushing the radiator, that is force the water back through the radiator the oposite way it normally goes with a high flow hose.

These vehicles, when equipped with the 3.1L engine are very prone to head gasket failure. A local garage should be able to preform a block check to tell wether combustion gasses are entering the coolant. Because you said the coolant pushed out the overflow this is definately where i would start. The normal operation of that vehicle is for the fans to turn on around 106 degrees celcius. If you can, take a temperature reading of the coolant to ensure they are coming on at the right temp. Other possibilities are an inefficient radiator, coolant temp switch/sensor causing inproper fan on temperature,

Make sure that the coolant fan turns on. It should be automatic When the car gets to operating temp the coolant starts to ciculate and the fan comes on. If it doesn't driving pushes air through the radiator and can lower the temp.

2005 Land Rover Freelander aux fans staying on too


The first thing you need to note is if the temperature is normal whilst you are using the car, if it is then it is probably just a sticking thermostat and to be honest that is not a great problem, however if your car is running hot whilst driving you need to check your coolant level which can be seen in a spherical bottle at the rear (left side I think) of the engine compartment ( DO NOT OPEN THE TOP OF THIS BOTTLE UNTIL THE ENGINE IS COOL ) if the level of coolant is low top it up, also look for debris around the radiator grill and keep the air flow path open.

If everything seems ok but the fan still runs excessivly leave another thread and I will explain how to faulf find the circuit to check the thermostat.
