    confused faulty temp gauge ?

    for some reason the engine temp gauge seems to be acting odd since the ecu failed last year,it can take upto 30 miles for the temp gauge to move and then sometimes it goes up to 90'c within 10 minutes,then sometimes it will drop back to 70'c or even 'cold'any idea what this could be ?

    If it was/is a problem before the warranty ran out and you had been in and out with the fault then they should treat it as an ongoing case. If not then replace them yourself. Easy to do and not that expensive.

    Vehicle : Opel Signum

    Trim : Sport

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 12/03

    Default

    Our 2.2DTi takes ages to warm up now. It's almost certainly a faulty thermostate, because my old Veccy B 2.2DTi warmed up after about 10miles. Tepmeratures below 5°C. My 3.0 is just fine for now
