    Default over heating

    i have a 56 plate diesel cdti vectra 150, and last year it started overheating. anyway vauxhall found that the water pump impeller was breaking up, and so wasnt able to push the water round the engine. they replaced it under warranty, anyway the temp gauge has never read over 80, even stuck in traffic. until now that is, now it goes all the way up to 90, now i know the thermostat probably only opens at 90, and it hasnt overheated yet, but why should the engine all of a sudden get 10 degrees hotter. i hope theres a simple explanation, and one of you guys has the answer.

    mine goes to 90 periodically which isnt an issue.

    If it goes to 90, and doesnt come back down to 80-85 then it's worth keeping your eye on.

    As an example of how to get it to 90, turn all your heating controls off, and turn fan off, sat there idling it will hit 90 within 2-3 mins before main fan kicks in.
