    Default temp gauge

    hi guys, i have a 1.9cdti 8v . not had car long & it came with a mad temp gauge , took ages to move off bottom mark , when it did move it never went above 80deg & then it would drop back to zero (or 70deg ) the heaters hot even when gauge drops , so fitted new temp sender , if any thing its even worse , doesn’t move for ages & very rarely reaches 80deg even tho the heaters red hot ..
    is there any thing else that controls the gauge… or could it just be a faulty sender ,

    (wonder if this has any thing to do with car missing or juddering on light throttle around 2000rpm ? )


    cheers guys any advice much app..

    i had the same problem with my 1.8, replaced the thermostat, this cured the problem. heater was good before but is better now.only thing is that the thermostat for the 1.8 petrol engine comes with the housing & sender unit combined.
