V70 Fan

Post by cantgrumble » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:13 pm

I know this weather is 'a little warm' but is it normal for the engine fan to be so 'active'.
Even on short journeys it kicks in and continues when the engine is switched off...a fast then a slower pace.
The temp gauge does not suggest a problem.

Please help.

If you have the A/C turned on, the fan will be on. If you are traveling at low speeds or in traffic on a hot day, it is very likely for the fan to come on. You can try rinsing gunk out of the radiator using a garden hose to increase airflow. As long as the coolant level stays were it should and the temp gauge continues to read 3 o'clock, I would not be too worried.

Ah thanks, not sure regards A/C but will check. I'm going to assume it is not a 'clogged' radiator'. The only reason I say that
is that although the car is 2006 it has only 50,000 miles on the clock ( could'nt believe my luck, a Japanese import in pristine
condition )

Thanks for your reply.
