    Engine full of snow!

    I can't see it cavitating that much, sounds more like a sensor fault.

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    When its cold mine is always very low esp on the motorway and only goes up when idling in traffic. Do not lose any coolant at all and no other issues so just think its normal. Not had the up and down like yours so I would have thought maybe a sensor fault or thermostat. Give the sensor a clean on the contacts as it might be a bit dirty.
