1.6 Tekna Overheating

Post by Jedi-R1 » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:20 am

Afternoon All,

We have a 2015 1.6 diesel turbo with auto box and recently its started overheating, only when the weather is hot and in slow traffic, I have had a quick search but can't really find much out about it, does anyone have any ideas?

There are a few obvious things, thermostat, temp sensor, fan etc - but I didn't know if there was anything common so I could start the search for a fix armed with a little insight?

Thanks in advance

If it's only the temperature gauge going a little higher, it may be the extra drain on the engine with the air con on. Or is it actually boiling?

check the front of the Radiator for objects blocking it. Could even be a lot of bugs i guess. How about giving the radiator a careful pressure wash
