Hi yer all my towcar is a 06 vectra 1.9 sri (150bhp) towing lunar solaris, my car runs solo with tempeture of 80 but when towing it rises to just over 90 the fan does not come on but never rises any higher,just wanted to know if anyother veccies out there thats runs the same or is this ok
All the Vauxhall range seem to run hotter. 55 plate and newer Zafiras don't have a temperature guage anymore as Vauxhall/Opel got innundated with customers booking their cars in as they thought they were running too hot!!
I have the same engine in my 57 Zafira and it didn't even seem to get warm driving 2000 miles through France & Spain last year.
My Insignia doesn't run any hotter when towing, in fact, it doesn't seem to lessen the mpg much either. I am only going off the onboard computer re the MPG. ;D But, the fuel guage reflects that info and my pocket, too.
