Fan keeps running

Post by Cathy 57 » Sat May 22, 2021 11:59 am

Hi my daughter purchased a q2 yesterday. Drove it today and the fan kept going after engine turned off. We are not mechanically minded so any advice would be welcome. Thanks

Hi,

The fan will keep on going for a while after turning off the engine if it is hot, this can be for many reasons ie a long drive at speed, the weather being hot, ect..

if the car is new it will probably be because the engine is tight, this will cause the engine to run hotter because there is more friction. When an engine is new the cylinder bores, piston rings and some bearings have to wear a very small amount to get to their optimum sizes, this is what is happening when you run the car in, during this time the engine can run a bit hot.

Hi. It’s a 66 plate. She drove about 6 miles this morning so is that normal. The weather is not warm and not at great speed. Thanks for your reply.

Hi,

How long does the fan stay on for?

As has been asked does the car have a diesel engine?
