My 04 2.4cdi transit is overheating and cutting out on the thermal trip on motorways but fine in slow traffic. We have serviced it and changed thermostat it is not using water.
Water level is at max with no water lost.
Radiator looks ok fins in reasonable condition.
Most likely to cut off when on motorway at 70 or climbing hills.
The temperature gauge moves rapidly to red cuts off engine, then rapidly returns to normal and runs ok. Note the water level had expanded when van had got hot.
Just flushed rad, water that was in system was clear no rust or large pieces of muck. Good flow of water through rad using a hose from tap.
have the same problem?
