When im driving along my cars temp is fine, it will sit just above 90 degrees.

But as soon as i stop e.g in traffic, picking/dropping off a mate within 1-2mins it will rise up to near 100, it never used to rise that quick.

I obviously have enough coolant, that was the first thing i checked, so will it be the thermostat? Or something else is says in the haynes manual like radiator core blocked?

Or is it a case of taking the thermostat out and testing it and trial and error?

No the fan doesnt kick in, but its not supposed to until 100degress, which it doesnt quite get to.

Cheers for the replies

I have the same prob on an C20xe where the water boils over before fan kicks in, now I may have a problem with having the wrong rad 1.4 sport rad!!!! but have you tried shorting the fan switch terminals with ignition on fan should turn( b carefull whilst doing that). if fan kicks in then rad switch is buggered
I wish that was my only prob
