    Default Temp gauge rising

    I noticed on way home today that the temp gauge on the veccy was sitting just over 90 when yesterday it didn't go over 90 the heater still works properly and the temp gauge goes down when blower is on checked the water level and that's fine car has done 67k so I'm stumped at what it could be any ideas

    Cheers

    Don't think they have been changed I've only had the car less than a week so was seeing if a simple fix first I didnt hear the fan kick in because I didn't let it get that far round the gauge lol had my bm crack the head in 6 places last time I did

    Normally it does but today it didn't as said it just could be cause its warm out and goes down when heater is turned on just strange as I don't like it when that gauge moves means money and trouble lol

    Could be your thermostat sticking, faulty coolant temp sensor or even the temp gauge itself - they are not always that accurate - 90 degrees isn't that high -as long as it doesn't keep going higher - I would be tempted to keep a close eye on it at this stage.
    Did you buy private or from a dealer?
