    Hi chaps,

    Recently when I turn my engine on the water temp light flashes and beeps.

    I have turned the engine off and restarted a few times and it goes away.

    Never comes on when im driving though.

    Is this a faulty sensor?

    Are you sure it's the water temp or the water level warning bud

    Well the water level seems to be fine, just comes up with the symbol and flashes and beeps.

    It's most likely the sensor Els

    I'd hedge my bet on it being the level sensor in the expansion tank for the coolant, they're only about a tenner brand new complete (and it will look nice in white instead of the mucky colour the original one will have turned to). It's seems to be a common fault, sometimes can be sorted by cleaning the 'prongs' inside but at a tenner it's a bit of a no brainer...
