bought a city 2006 car 15 days back, its fan was direct, i made it to auto on saturday. gone on a long ride with the family suddenly RED heating light appears, stop the car at the corner and side reserve bottle was heating like hell, water and flame coming from it, after some times with the help of a cloth opened the radiator cap, water flows like shower. car is getting off. so i kept the excelator and a guy started filling the water, water is flowing like shower, one thing notice that fan is not working so i on the AC and let the fan run. later want to the mechanin and made the fan direct again. its working fine now.
Now im worried is that the city car is an electronic car and its system is auto then why we need to alter to direct. secondly what you people say, is the gaskit is the main cause or radiator. or should i kept the fan on direct.
