Hi

Someone may beat me to this but it is quite normal for the fan to keep going even when the car is turned off, but the boiling noise you are hearing doesn't sound good to me!! I'm sure someone will confirm this but I would take it back to the garage and demand they sort it out. You have paid £750 for them to sort it out and they should have it back to you in 100% condition. If it was me, I'd take it back in tomorrow.

It doesn't sound like all the air has been removed from the coolant system and/or it needs a new coolant cap.

If the cap isn't on properly then that could well be your problem.

New caps are available from Xpart or Halfords.

In any case i would go back to the garage immediately, sounds like there is still some air trapped in the system.

i came back from garage. they are going to change coolant again. maybe air is still inside. they also said that tf engines are rubbish. :(.
one more question: air inside makes coolant boiling??

Charming! If it were me, I wouldn't take mine back there. Hand over £750 and have them insult your car? Do they want repeat business? Where abouts are you, we're pretty national here so there should be someone around who can recommend a decent garage in your area.
