    Heres 1 for the boffins out there...

    Strated a new job recently,which involves a few mototrway journeys... In the intrests of saving fuel, its been a nice 6th gear pootle all the way there and back...

    But this morning i noticed the temp gauge wasnt moving till i gave it abit of beans?? Then it would fly up to 90 and stay there.. Obviousley concentrating on my driving, i wasnt keeping an eye on it, but when i did look again, i noticed it had died off again, back to nothing????

    NOW, i know your all thinking thermo switch, BUT i fired up my Liquid gauge, and that was reading temps fine.. no fluxuation 88/90 all the way.. So whats causing just the OE dash gauge to be so intermitent???

    Pete...

    Try changing the temp sensor.

    Its cheap and takes less than 5 minutes to change ;)

    I'd say temp sensor or thermostat or both
