  1. Just did a test on my water pump. I let the car warm up for 5 mins then i took the return pipe off that leads back to the coolant tank and there was a slugish amount of water coming back through it hardly nothing at all. Does that diagnose that the pump is at fault as there should be a strong jet of water coming back through it ???????????????????????
  2. Hi is there anyone who can help me with this awefull fault i am having with my car. Whenever im travelling on motorways and get up to high speeds to 80mph and over my temp sensor soars up to maximum untill i drop off to a lower speed of 50mph and it settles back to normal. However when i get back to 80mph same thing happens again temp senor soars then i start getting a loss of power in all gears forcing me to pull over. After looking at the engine coolant levels it appears as normal with no signs of overheating. After a brief stop the car will drive perfectly normal again untill i hit anything over 70mph then the fault constantly happens making it impossible to drive. Ive called the RAC out twice and they are unable to find a fault even with the lap top attatched. The 2nd RAC guy i saw said hes seen a similar problem on "VW" vehicles and suspects a possible water pump impellor slipping???? Ive also been to a garage and told them what was going on and they didnt have a clue what the problem could be. So i am in a dilema to what it could be I would greatly appreciate any advice on this fault if anyone has ever came across it before.
