    Guys i think the Q needs a new sensor as it's been a bit screwy since the winter, it will hit 90 then drop back again and then hit 90 and be ok now it just gets 50 and that's it.

    I know its not an easy job but how best is it to minimise coolant loss , engine cold got that but do i leave the coolant cap on or off on the tank?

    ta muchly

    All done thanks folks, the only thing i will say is that it's not easy to get to and the clip when i took it off was the facing the block, totally impossible to push back on but it does go on from the bulkhead side, just!
