    put the key in, turn the switch ON (don't start the car), if radiator fan starts it means its direct.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    if it would be always on fan, it would never reach till half. as i had Direct fan before and now automatic. i never seen the temp needle in middle when it was direct. and now it reaches till middle and fan works.

    You didn't mention that if AC of ur car was on or off? If the AC was on and u saw thee needle in middle after 10 kms then there is nothing to worry about.
    Regarding radiator fan, In summers mostly ppl keeps the fan direct, but in winters preference is for automatic. In case of automatic, Fan is controlled by a thermostatic switch and it turns on when the temperature of coolant goes above the set point and turn back when it becomes normal.

    i think the fan is automatic as per zia tip given i check

    on turning ON the switch fan doesnt run

    AC is not check yet

    i driven some 42 km from islamabad E-11 to sadar and on return due to traffic jam it took about 1 hr +

    the needle stays at middle position

    i thing this model has automatic fan


    im going to change coolant in summer to LIQUI MOLY coolant

    one thing i observe that radiator supplier tank was near to empty today

    automatic fan is when your car temp needle reaches half or just before half mark,the radiator fan will kick in.
    if your car needle stays in middle and reaches this level within 10 minutes after start of car,that means car is also having thermostat valve in it...thats good for that car because half mark of temp needle is best temperature for a normal operating engine. and as far as coolant is concerned,dont wait till summer,get is ASAP,because plain water will cause rust in the water lines and thats not a good thing at all.so better invest in coolant at first preference...coolant is a long lasting thing,it lasts for about 30to 40k kms ,my suggestion,get it in system.im using zic coolant in my car,its 300per liter prediluted.my car is khyber and it needs about 4 liters of it.

    and about reservoir level droping,if its not happening on daily basis,nothin to worry about.a normal drop in reservoir bottle over the period of 3-6 months is okay..if its happening on regular basis,might be a leak in your system.pinpoint it and rectify...when you let the car parked overnight,do you see any drops of water under engine area in the morning ?

    Caltex provides best coolant, is bit expensive but it is best and suits every car. Have been using it in all my 3 cars.

    thanks every one for detail information

    actually i have own this car on 11 oct 2013.

    i was refering to the radiator supplier (plastic bottle) tank.

    radiator i have open twice and found to full level

    after a week period i need to put in the water .today it was almost 30 % left in the supplier bottle/tank

    ok how much litre of coolant is required ?? and how to drain the radiator


    i didnt saw any water under the car as leakage but will check it again

    but when i open radiator i saw yellow particles floating - dont know what is that

    about AC the gas is not filled , will check this later on regular tunning some days later.

    what is the km range for shell helix AX 5(yellow bottle) for mehran???

    and i just fill the tank up with water(i think a bit more than one litre)

    automatic turns on when temperature increases and it turns off automatically when the temperature is in control.

    btw use coolant instead of tap water. it will help avoiding the rust in pipes and also keep temperature in control better.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?
