Only started yesterday.Temperature reached 100 idling but when driving goes down to 93-94 (normal because of air coming in). I can feel the hot air inside the car just near my feet. (not from heater inside car...)

Fan does work when idling but temp doesnt quite go down

checked the coolant today, added some anti freeze because level went about 5mm down (guess it is the water going...not leaking)

No trace of leakage

drove again, though temp didnt go up to 100, it stayed at 98...(always decreasing when driving)

any advice please

thanks

What exactly are you wanting advice on ?

your heater control in the centre of your dash which picture is it pointin to as there are 4 options

Temp of coolant will reach between 90 - 100 before fan kicks in

down at the bottom to the left of your clutch is the Heater Matrix for your warm/hot air for ya heater fan

yeah mine heats up when idling more than usual, but remember 2 weeks ago we were getting highs of 5 degrees, and now we are getting 15+ degrees so its natural it'll be running warmer. although i've not been sat around long enough for my fan to kick in recently.

the warm air will be coming front heater matrix, no other place it can come from cos of all the insulation on bulkhead.

if its still giving hot air it may be a snapped cable in the air flow adjustment (ie. at you, at windscreen, at feet...) or one of the things is loose. remember even when the heating fans aren't on the air flow from outside will still be coming in

if it really troubles you, blast your fans on number 4 on HOT and it should go down faster when the engine fan kicks in.

just install a cold air feed hose to your radfiotr or air filter or even both, will cool down your car.
