run fault codes to find faulty sensors. Then there are dozens of reasons for a thirsty engine so I will list a few
1 tyre size and inflation
2 driver habits
3 blocked exhaust (cat converter faulty)
4ignition timing
5 fuel injectors
6 load in the vehicle
7 load on top of the vehicle
9 speed
10 area= Hilly --city -- stop start
11 if carby check for faulty power valve.
12dragging brakes / pads
13 fuel pressure
14 not engaging OD in automatic box
15 drive line wear
16 wheel alignment
these are just a few and a combination of any will knock considerable mileage off the economy.

I think you have an engine speed sensor fault. its not reading the engine speed or the motion speed. needs these two to change speed and ( gear). one is connected to the abs unit and the other is on the engine. usually if they both go its down to the gear box ecu. you can check if you have it on a ecu reader. will have fault codes or not be read at all.

You'll need to find out if you have power to the starter cables with the key in the start position. There's not much other than the key switch or the fuse box that would kill the engine and also not allow the engine to crank. You are dealing with two different systems.

you may have to change the thermostat could be stuck . if that is not the problem then you need to bleed the air out of the cooling system near the neck were the thermostat there should be a bleed screw you need to have the car running when you do this , you start to loosen the screw little at a time without taking it out completely at some point when the car reaches temp. the coolant will start to come out of this screw when it starts to flow consistently then you close the screw and that should do it . make sure you start this process when the cars is cool never do it when its overheating .good luck

sounds like you have a bad blend door actuator some of these actuators have a small motor in it with plastic gear once that gear wears it does not mesh with the gear on the blend door arm . so you are unable to switch from cold to hot.

The solenoid located on the starter motor is going bad. You do NOT have to get a whole starter to fix this. Just replace the solenoid. You can get that part at any auto parts store.

Is the cooling fan coming on at 230 degrees ? Are there any other factors that could cause excessive heat such as a blocked exhaust system ?

Usually if the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedo assembly. It would need to be sent to a shop for repair or replaced with a used assembly.
