The Heater dash mounted dial to the highest posaition. ''No HEAT is coming from Blower heater unit. Just cold air . The engine temperature is NORMAL. Radiator fluid appears normal, and is full. Air conditioning (cold) works fine. The V belt that drives the water pump is in new condition.

Look for two water lines about 1 in in diameter running back toward the condensor unit in the firewall. On one of those lines will be a control. It is sometimes vacum controlled. When they are vacum conrolled they have a tendency to get stuck or you may have lost vacum to the unit. You can use a vacum tester and short piece of hose to test this to see if you have lost vacum or if it is stuck closed. Connect the test hose to the control on teh hose and apply vacum to the unit. If the valve opens you will get heat in the vehicle. If it does not open then it is stuck in the closed position and will need to be replaced in most cases.

Possibly head gasket failure (HGF), do you need to keep topping it up with coolant? Are there any traces of oil in the coolant? Is there a mayonnaise like substance in the oil filler cap? If all of the above, then almost definitely head gasket failure.
If so, get the new multi layered steel gasket kit (available on ebay at a reasonable price), it includes the through bolts holding the engine together. Oil will need flushing, coolant will need flushing, head will need pressure testing. Cooling system MUST be free of airlocks when refilled, or the same thing could happen again.

Temperature gauge is notoriously inaccurate, mine blew a hose last year, all coolant lost, temperature gauge still read normal! Fortunately had just picked up a new hose, so road side repair (thanks to AA) was possible with no further damage. The gauge only measures water temperature, so when there is a coolant loss, and there is no coolant at the temperature sensor level, it stays at normal!!! Daft or what?
If coolant loss is the problem due to HGF, also try to get a new header bottle with a coolant level sensor, this will let you know when you suffer a coolant loss as soon as it happens.

Temp gauge sits normal and after a while shoots to max with warning light working no coolant loss..earlier today light came on at 70mph..drove 14miles tonight at average 50..and light did not...

Most obvious question is when that happens, is the engine actually overheating or just reading that it is?
If there are no signs of overheating, I'd check that the temp sender is working correctly and that the wiring to it is not grounding somewhere. Though not "high tech" you can tape a small dial type thermometer that has readings past 240 to the upper hose and check temp when light is on compared to "normal".If readings are similar, then I'd change sender.
Also check the a/c condenser for obstructions. (leaves, bugs, plastic bags etc). That alone can cause strange temp fluctuations.

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.
