    Last thursday took the car out and got an engine coolant tempature warning (was at 110degrees)
    Left it over the weekend thinking it was the broken plastic bits on the waterpump, but today when I turned the ignition on the temperature gauge is still showing 90degrees?

    Is it more likely to be the sender, thermostat or will a broken pump have caused both to fail

    Hopefully someone can shed some light on it, Thanks

    If the engine is cold and the temp gauge is showing 90deg then its likely to be the CTS...
