Hi all,posted this Q a few weeks back but have more info.My mates 99T scenic diesel was cutting out on him(driving & stand still) and starting after about 20 mins every now and again?? i suggested a Top Dead Centre but garage told him that it was ok.Tonight we tested it at work, when the engine is ran for 20 mins and gets hot it cuts out and doesnt start for about 15-20 mins, the fan doesnt cut in, but does work(we shorted it),we suspect the thermostat of being U/S and thst the ecu is cutting the engine as a safety feature??? anyone agree/disagree-all help needed as the local garage had it 4 a week and couldn't find it:crazy:

thermostat disconnected, and still happening.Any ideas, it only happens when the engine gets to normal temp, once you turn off the engine it wont start for 20 mins or so,

ithe garage connected it to the laptop diagnostic machine-turned out to be the TDC-a large slice of humble pie for the garage one feels, they still charged him £30 for the diagnostic though?? i told the mechanic it was that 6 weeks ago??
