So its a nice day , thought i would get some fuel and head out for a ride.

Within 3 miles, temp gauge going well over half and then up in to red. ( but before red light illumination)

This was gentle driving with traffic.

AC was on full whack ( 30 degrees C here today outside)

My Aux van is spinning really fast (you can hear it)

Viscous fan on engine is turning plenty but not really vroooming or picking up even faster, and it can be stopped by hand/newspaper.

Your thoughts please? I haven't opened radiator tank yet as way to hot.
Managed to stop the car wait for it to cool and got it home quick, i now feel rather looking at it. Ive only had it two months.
