    Default what sensor does the temp gauge use on dash

    is there a sensor that the temp gauge uses specifically. i know there is a sensor on top of the thermostat on a 2.2 dti. is there another one?? my gauge goes up and down all the time, id understand if faster road speed, but this drops in seconds and rises again, and it happens most of the time. Ive chganged the stat and the sensor recently, could an air lock cause this, the heater isnt quite as hot as it was before?? i can even open the exp tank when engine is really hot, only get a little hiss of steam, doesnt rise up and boil over like most cars ive had

    It's the sensor on top of the thermostat. I had the same issue when i got my dti last year, i replaced the thermostat, been problem free ever since!
