OK got a car what was going for spares and repairs at a good price
Bit of rust and an faulty injector
Injector is sorted and car has a full not a few advisory but nothing major

So my temp gauge does not move yes a fraction from the left on the cold side
It does not move at all
Told my mechanic today who removed thermostat to see if it would help
Been for an hundred mile trip today car drove fine
I noticed there's quite a bit of engine brake when cruising at 80mph once I take my foot off the gas it Judders down to 70mph
Gauge didn't move an inch but I've noticed I've used lots of diesel
I put 45 pounds in around 35 liters and its had gone in 150 miles
Stopped at a petrol station to check fan still not spinning
I'm pretty concerned about my engine overheating
Its been pretty hot today in england also

My air con fan as seized up I believe the furthest away fan

Please any advice would be great

A/c fan is the one on the outside on left when bonnet opened. Rad fan is on right between rad & engine. See whetehre rad fan moves with your fingers with engine off. If it is tight & does not spin the bearings have gone. They are replaceable.
I¡d be more concermed about why it isn't warming up. It should be at the halfway mark.
