in the dark. noticed this 40C last year, but recently I come how after driving
a few minutes an my fan is always on high speed. A/c not in use, there

would check the temperature of the radiator with a lazer thermal spot gun..they are like around 25 bucks...you can measure if the temperature exceeds operating temperature...the 295 degree thermostat should be new...we can see if the temperature is higher because the t-stat is plugged....or if you have good coolant flow~

I will look into that thankyou for your help, any chance I'm just paranoid? or is this for sure not suppose to be happening

inspect the fluids...perhaps it's been more then 4 years before you've had new hoses, new thermostat and cleaned or replaced PVC elbow~ might have these routinely replaced items...the cooling jacket may be buggered up by now with so much service~ perhaps the timing chain is loose and slappy~

Coolant was bleed properly today, engine temperature okay, rad fan is clean nothing obstructing it. New thermostats. No coolant leaks. no error codes come up from a scan gauge. Thermostats is functioning perhaps I'll try replacing that next though, timing chain isn't making any abnormal noises. Pvc would give me an error code no? As well I will look into the cooling jacket
