    Tonight on my way home stuck in traffic it did the same,it hit 90 went over a bit, fan kicked in and went just below. It did this 2 or 3 times..
    Any one explain why its doing it all of a sudden...
    ta...

    Perfectly normal mate - the airflow of driving usually keeps it around 85, and sitting stationary causes it to raise till it reaches the temp where the fan kicks in. Do you know if you definitely have a DPF...?

    That answers that one then...

    It may have been doing it then, but certainly nothing to worry about mate. Easiest way is to check the instantaneous consumption if you have that option on yours...

    Your temp seems to be acting normally, just like mine really. No worries.
