More Coolant/Electrical Issues?
Im fed up I solve one problem and get another!
I drove the car the other day and noticed that the temperature gauge wasnt moving much of 50 which is obviously cold. The hot air was blowing luke warm through the heaters and when I stopped at my house and reved the car for a while the gauge rose to 90 and the air felt hotter. It took alittle while to get upto notmal temp (90).
I thought nothing of it and started it today first thing this morning and it started as if it was warm. Meaning the tick over when started cold normally goes upto 1500rpm then drops down to 850ish rpm once its ran for a few mins. That never happened. Then I noticed that the radiator fans where on.
So I drove to work which is 20 miles and then check to see if the fans where on and they where not. But still the temperature gauge was only just above 50.
Now my fans still come on and the engine management light is on!
To add more confusion if you havent read my previous thread I have a water leak from somewhere which I cant find. The water level is fine and there is no loss of compression and no water in the oil etc.
Any suggestions or advice would be great. I know I may need to take it to a garage to get the code read but im trying to avoid that if I can as they charge a rip off price round here to diagnose the fault.
My guess is the water temperature sensor is faulty. I think that would kick the fans in and put the ECU light on. What do you think?
