My ford bantam 2003 model 1,6i XLE rocam engine is overheating after few minutes after I started.Fan tested and is functioning well. When I switch on the aircon the fan works fine & when it goes to red the aircon switches on but still overheating. Water and oil are in the correct levels. What could be the problem?

Thermostat, water pump, clogged radiator or cooling system.

From my experience it's the thermostat

Check the pressure on your water pump, thermostat and double check if is not mixing water and oil

Is the fan a two speed fan ? The air con models should be two speed. Is the thermostat a genuine Ford part or pirate part ?
