    Default Temperature problems?????

    A bit of help please. Heres the problem, when running round town the car sits at 85 degrees which i understand is normal but when doing motorway speeds the temp is around 75 sometimes a bit lower when pushing it. I have repaced the thermostat twice this year (1st one wouldnt go over 80 deg) so just wondering what it may be or is this normal???

    Going on a 800 mile road trip shortly so dont want to cause any problems is something is wrong.

    Something is not right there, hun. Mine runs at a steady 85 degrees, no matter how I drive her.

    Takes about 3-4 miles to hit 85 from cold

    As tanys baby says, mine takes around 5 miles to get up to 85 degrees from cold, only time I've seen it budge from there was up a steep hill on a very hot day driving lead footed when it went, briefly, to 90 then came back down.

    Wouldn't worry too much - probably with the higher speeds this is cooling the engine and you have a more sensitive temp gauge that is showing this variation. I would be more worried if it was getting hotter!!

    Does it drop down from 85 when you put the heaters on full blast?
