SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS overheating

The cooling fan on the LS-V8 is hydraulic yes. But it also has a pressure switch on the pump that drives the fan. It is controlled by the temperature sensor. All these things must be taken into account. But the whining sound my lead me to believe that the pump is either low on fluid or is wearing out. The fluid the fan pump uses is the same as the power steering pump container so check it first. The same thing happened to my wife's Lincoln. I replaced the fan as well because everybody told me to do that but it didn't work. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp. sensors. When the engine get's hotter the pressure goes up and the fan spins faster. This adds more power to the engine when it's running cooler because the fan doesn't have to spin at max speed. So good luck. I hope this has solved your problem.

What should the tyre pressure be for a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXI 2008


There should be a sticker on the door or door surround when you open the front doors. Pressure should be on there though likely to be in bar, ie 1.2 bar, or kpascals. they seem to have dropped psi but 30 psi / 1.2 bar is near enough for a reinflate. If it goes down you have a puncture and will need to visit a tyre shop.

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 engine warning light came on and the car won't accelerate. Took to mechanic twice for car not accelerating when stepping on the accelerator. They replaced the accelerator peda


Unfortunateley there are lots of things that can cause this and they will all send the car into limp mode. The only way to get to the bottom of what is wrong is to get a diagnostic check carried out and obtain any fault codes and the systems they relate to. Has the fuel filter been replaced as a blockage in this can cause lack of power.
