Sudden overheating
#1
Engine overheating,  STOP now came on and luckily enough I was in sight of the emergency lay-by on M62 not so smart motorway!!
Never had any issues with temp before runs on half all the time and 99% of my journeys are motorway miles.
Temp rocketed up literally to red in seconds. AA assistant came had a look towed car to next junction but couldn't find anything so after the van running in idle for 20mins or so plus giving it a few revs the temp stayed at its normal level. So AA said give it a Drive and he'd follow behind yet after a few miles on motorway again it shot back up... Tow home so now looking for any possible hints as what it may be ??

Sticking thermostat? Broken spring etc.

I was hoping maybe thermostat as very sudden plus ok when in idle just a bit of an odd one as no leaks apart from a bit of water out of expansion tank.

Is it obviously overheating? Not the sender faulty? To be the thermostat it presumably would have to shut after it has already opened, seems unlikely.

True - maybe the plug has come off the sensor at the battery side.

New thermostat ordered as been leaking for some time guys in garage showed me the white dried up scale underneath thermostat housing, bit of a lump not like old school thermostats. Bottom rad hose wasn't getting correct Circulation so they believe it to be faulty thermostat. I think I've got it right they did explain.

I had the same thing last year. For some reason, the impeller of the water pump separated from its shaft... As a result, there was no circulation of the coolant trough the system. But at the same time, at idle, the engine could maintain normal temperature. Fixed by replacing the water pump.
