change your thermostat.check fan clutch if too much slippage take it out and apart put any rtv silicone sealant inside of it and reinstall it. but first thing is make sure ur not leaking fluid and run 50 oercent coolant 50 percent water if you ran or are runing just water and its brown well.... flush it all out.dont let any car run over the half way mark or you will blow head gasket. thats alot of money

Hiya thanks for the adive...I had a look and i do have brown water in the radiator, so I will flush it out and do the 50/50 water..coolent and see how I go with that.

my fan is ok as I have tested that and there is not slippage! so only thing left after that is the radiator or thermostat.
