Water bubbles in tank is normal. Rovers have a closed system, that onset an overflow bottle, it's a remote filler and you normally will see coolant circulating in tank. I'd be worried if I didn't see circulation.

I have a freelander 2000 model, When ever i try to use the A/C, it does take 5mins for the car to overheat & Stop itself. meanwhile the Temprature indicator is fixed at the center indicating that the...

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.

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.

New thermostat,waterpump,coolant,block flushed rad flushed still overheats and coolant seems not to be circulating rad and bottom hose cold, top hoses extra hot

only the top hose gets hot m8 means the therm is opening up like its needs to do. i think your temp sensor/ sending unit is on the fritz

is the rad fan working??

Hi ,
Not easy this one,when your turbo failed the oil feed to the turbo bearings continued to feed engine oil into the intake side(could not turn off),the engine is then Un-governed and free to rev way above maximum limit,it has then massively over heated, the oil treatments are unlikely to cause this problem ,usually down to not letting the Turbo "wind down " after driving,The best course of action is to replace the engine and turbo charger and have the induction pipes and intercooler properly cleaned ,there are no cheap fixes for this you were just unlucky.

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.
