    Default Temperature Sensor?

    Hi Guys,

    Got a 2.2 Signum petrol and the temp sensor seems to take a while to come up and when fully warm only shows just under half warm, around 80oc, is this a sensor fault?, if so what sensor do I need?

    Thanks

    More likely a failed thermostat.

    Easy enough to change.

    2 bolts and some fresh antifreeze.

    The dial wouldn't be erratic if the thermostat was faulty. If the thermostat is stuck open then the dial will be showing that the engine rarely reaches the correct temperature (except when stuck in traffic perhaps), or if it's stuck closed then the engine will be at too high a temperature.
