Hi, car is a 2011 2L diesel. We’ve only had it 2 weeks and my wife has noticed the fan stays on after driving all of a sudden. The engine area feels hot. Coolant level is fine. Thermostat? Easy to change??

Sound like the engine is doing a regen ( cleaning the DPF ) in the exhaust. How for is she driving it ? It will need a good run about 20 miles to complete and fuel in the tank . Has it got stop start and if so it will not work if doing a regen but will start working again when finished. If it start cleaning don’t switch off the engine until it has finished or it will start over next time you start up.
