    Temerature Problem ???

    Hi guys just recently my temp gauge is showing some worrying signs.
    Normaly it stay's at 90 degrees Normal op temp

    But in the last week it is creeping over the 90 and up to 100 105 degrees im not sure why. When I Stop then the fan comes on any ideas

    Coolant is fine do you think it might be a sign of the thermostat going ???

    Be sure that yu don't have any air in the system, mine shot up over 100c when I hadn't bled it properly

    failed water pump sounds plausible.

    Mine worked fine if the revs were low, but bring it up past about 2-2.5k and the pump impeller would start slipping on the shaft and the temp would shoot up. slow down or stop and the impeller would grip again and temp would drop back down.
