    Collected car ,there were a few error code mostly to do with engine temps , main one being going into limp home mode and the result being the coolant fan being on constant, after a few tests it's being narrowed down to thermostat or a faulty sender, so the thermostat is going to be replaced, minimum 2-hours labour to replace so not the cheapest
