97 1.2 engine temp - vin
Hi my corsas temperature seems to rise quite a long way towards red when left idling or in traffic. Once moving temp sits bang in middle of gauge and you can see needle moving slightly as stat opens. the fan cuts in but its over 100 degrees by then. could it be a faulty fan switch. Thanks for any replies.

The switch for the fan is on the radiator of course. If it doesn't go near the red on the gauge when stuck in traffic before fan cuts in and doesn't overheat with all levels up to the mark I'd not worry really. Just under 90 degrees on the gauge is usual for a Vauxhall when on the move but gauges aren't particularly accurate on most cars.
