Default Problem with Ford Ikon- Engine Fan

Hi... I m new to this forum.I own second hand Ford Ikon Flair which has done 80k odd kms. Whenever i start driving ,after 4-5 kms the fans starts with its maximum speed.I Have replaced the choked radiator as mechanic said the water circulation is not proper and engine is getting heated. Even after replacing the radiator the problem persists ,now he says there is a problem with gas kit and needs to be repaired.

I need advice on whether I should do the repair work for gas kit ?
Is it advisable to drive the car with such problem?

Hi

Well it could be a temp sensor problem and it may also be a fan problem.Do take it to a *** and get it checked out.No it is not at all adviced to drive the car with such a problem.

@amit, I had a similar issue last year in my 1.6 and I had to replace a resistor and it costed me ~3K IIRC. Some of Ford's parts are crazy costly.

Buddy, he must be refering to Head gasket- not gas kit. Since his first diagnosis turned out to be wrong, I won't be enthusiatic to follow this advise.

Check for the following that could indicate blown head gasket
1) White smoke
2) Oil in Coolant

Looks like there is some coolant leakage somewhere, Top up your coolant & check for leaks, need not do anything else.

@ Ford Rocam, Thanks for the advice.But the problem is I was not using any coolant since radiator was chocked and needs to be replaced. Though the leakage is stopped the problem seems to continue.Just now I visited the mechanic, he brought to my notice that there is no water in the radiator and he told me that head-gasket is the only part causing this.
