Just a quick question. My car is running hot. There is no warning light, but when I put my hand on the bonnet, it is hot to touch. Why hasn't a warning light appeared? What could be causing this problem?

Appreciated.

Is there steam coming from the engine bay? If not, I doubt you have anything to worry about. Your bonnet (hood in the US) will get hot after the engine is warm. IMO it's probably normal. Hopefully others will respond with their knowledge.

Thanks for the reply Michael. No steam, so I'm feeling relaxed now. Thanks for that.
