    Sounds Like thermostat and thermostat sensor that is not working correctly.

    On the Swifts both the sensor and thermostat is part of the same housing and you buy it as a Unit..

    Perhaps go to your Dealerahip and let them have a look at it. There could also be an error code displaying from the ecu as well.
