  1. xr2i overheating

    hey ive got a xr2i and its been fine until recently. the cars temp gauge needle sits near the top of the gauge (its in the norm bit tho) and the fans kick in obviously, it'll cool down for a bit, then the needle will move up again and the fans kick in. The heaters all work and water is being pumped through the engine as you can feel through hoses etc. The hoses dont get too hot around the radiator, they get hot but not like overheating hot. Am i worrying over nothing, i mean it doesnt appear like anything wrong, but i dunno. Could it be the thermostat? or the sensor for the temp gauge?? any ideas people.... thanks
