    Recntly had a new engine put in my car. Went on a long trip after a while realised the temp was up high almost in red stoped for 5 mins and went back to normal. Which suggests its the fan not working, which is right. But also now after using the car for small trips, when I stop the car I can hear the water bubling which suggests to me the water isnt circulating properly would this be the thermostat?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    It seems like its either a thermostat, head gasket or pump problem, so I'd try running without the stat first.
    If no joy there, ask a garage to do a 'sniff' test to see if there is any exhaust leakage into the coolant.
    Also check the heater valve for leaks as air can get in there too.
