    Bro are you using AC???? its common problem in mehran when you turn on your AC it heats up so quickly.

    Get some bigger radiator. Use Coolent rather than water but dont use just coolent 60% water and 40% Coolent.

    Direct Your Fan and add relay to your fan.

    Please get serviced your radiator as many tubes of radiator get blocked with time. Another problem is of fins. Dueto service station water pressure many of them become twisted so it becomes difficult for the fan to suck up plenty of air. Thanks

    mehran's temperature gage always tends to stand at a higher side. I experienced a similar problem in my VX some 3 years ago and the problem was the thermostat valve. It was not working properly. Then i connected the fan directly. It still didnt satisfy me so in the end i got my radiator thoroughly serviced, added coolant+water mixture, kept my fan direct and the problem was more or less solved.


    I dont know however if thats a permanent solution coz i sold the car after couple of months.

    Where is the temp gauge pointing at when your fan turns on?

    20K kilometers? how old is the car, I would suggest that you get your radiator serviced.. Removing the thermostat valve isn't really a solution. its just a band aid. No need to keep your fan direct, just get your radiator serviced and see.

    oh sorry. Since you mentioned its a 2005 model. I am SURE that your radiator needs servicing. By posts I think that most of the things are working good.. so I'm pretty sure its the radiator.

    Hmm, okay, if its ahead if the middle line, and doesn't come back as it should since you have a T-stat valve, its overheating. Yeah, get that serviced and fill it will about 2 liters of coolant and rest distilled water. I also have a mehran, but donot have a t-stat valve, didn't have it from the showroom, but I let my temp gauge stay at the middle, my fan is automatic, and yet it never goes beyond the half line even with AC. And I always rev high, change the gears late within the limit of course.. its just so much fun :p even in a mehran :p

    ^^its a thermostat-valve that start the radiator fan once the car gets to a particular temprature...it keeps the fan working till the point the engine temprature comes down to normal levels and then it shuts the fan off...
