    Default 1.8 sri 53reg Coolant temperature

    Any ideas,

    My 1.8 SRI 2003 is not registering (stuck 0n 60))on the coolant temp when driving on the motorway as soon as i come to a junction and stop the needle starts to rise, the temp gauge hardly registers when I am driving around town, gauge reads around the 70 mark. I have run the engine at home on the drive and the needle hits 90 deg and the fans kick in.

    The spanner light comes on now and again brierfly are they connected?

    Is this the norm as this is my first veccy?

    You should find that your fuel economy gets a darn sight better from now on as well!

    I had this on my old 1.8 sxi.

    Combination of thermostat, and goosed water pump resulted in the problem.
    Fuel consumption decreased significantly afterwards
