Engine Cooling problem
2004 Peugeot 206 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 21000 miles

I've got a Peugeot 206 which is 5 years old. In the past four days it has started overheating. The temperature shoots up into the red and the sign of stop comes visible. The fans and temperature sensors have been checked but the problem has not been solved. All this has been done through a garage so its not just me guessing at what's wrong. I've looked online and seen others with the same problem but there doesn't seem to be any clear solutions. What should I do? It's the first time I have a problem with this car but it seems very serious.

Check/replace thermostat. Check/replace water pump. Have a compression test of the cylinders carried out. Flush the cooling system incase of a blockage !
