benters Posted February 5, 2016 Report Share Posted February 5, 2016 Guys, after a new radiator a couple of hundred miles ago, the car is running fine and dandy. However without any relevant traffic related conditions and according to the gauge the needle will on occasions creep quite quickly up and then down again. Sometimes it reaches 110 and then falls back to its normal running position of 80c . . . . .this all happens in a matter of a minute, so I assume its the gauge or sensor. Anyone got any experience on this ? The coolant level light stays out, so I don't suspect anything other than a duff signal. . .as a further test, in a start up and leave to warm up cycle the car gets to temperature, the fans kick in and all seems normal. . .the fact that it appears to be random makes me think it is the sensor but does anyone have any wise words ??
