    Default Temperature

    Hi All

    Drove from Wolverhampton to London and back yesterday. Noticed that that temperature gage remained rock bottom whilst on the motorway. When I was on A roads the gage moved very slightly if at all.

    Please advise on what I need to check/replace and How2's much appreciated.

    Many Thanks in advance

    Thats for the VVt engine as it has a ECU controlled valve in it.
