    Hi sifus.... sorry for interupting... I wanna ask.. I have Saga BLM 2008,,, the problem is,,, I have already check,, there is no leaking on radiator,, just change the motor of the fan,., but when I drive without air con is ok... but if I on the air cond,, when I just stop for example traffic lights,, the temperature just increase and the air cond feels hot... what is the problem?? I noob in cars but I suspect the culprit is the thermostats... can I remove it and just direct it??

    Never remove your thermostat.
    Check whether your fan is working and/or at optimum speed, since you mention air con hot when stop at traffic lights...

    Check your radiator ventilation to make sure that there is nothing blocking the radiator. Also check your radiator cap to make sure that its still ok. Finally check for any minor leaks that can cause temperature to rise

    are you using coolant or just water? These days weather too hot to be using only water

    i tink u already found the solution.
    bring it to your mech and ask them to change for u and check the fan fuse as well.

    u might need also to consider changing the water pump if your mileage is high and never change it yet.

    just my opinion...hehehe...

    Yeah.... I hope its not top overhaul.... but it maybe the reason why always temperature up,, more than 3 bar....
    Yeah,, it is just like bro budakkampungaje, 1st hose hot then 2nd hose is cold..... about the water in the radiator,, when I open the radiator cap during engine on,, the water is not ejaculate from the radiator when ramm,,..... about the fan relay,, I did not check,, did not have the proper tool and knowledge

    some mech might not be familiar with the new proton cars.
    its best if u can join any proton saga blm club and check their history.
    or mayb they haf a panel workshop u can send your car without being chop and bleed to death...

    Nope..... I did go to service center,, but they also didnt know why... They ask for me leave my car there. But I refuse and go to air con shop. He said wiring problem. So I go to wiring shop,, and they find the relay below the fuse box... I thought there are nothing below there. He change the relay,, the price is RM28(relay)+RM17(labour work)=RM45... phewww!

    Its either the thermostat, or your fan have some problem to it, or blown gasket.

    problem 1: thermostat= refer to mechanic in the workshop
    problem 2: consider adding a relay.
    problem 3: top overhaul.
