Engine Temperature Gauge Misbehaving

4 posts in this topic

I have a strange problem with a temperature gauge.

It rarely shows the right temperature. The needle stays at 0 and it rarely climbs up, when it does (usually that happens on a motorway at above 120km/h speed) it climbs to a normal position and stays there until I brake.

My first thought was thermostat but it passed the boiling water in a cup test. Cooling fans seem to do their job to.

If I turn the heater to 30°C it blows hot air.

Does anybody knows the location of a cooling water temperature sensor on 1.8TDCI (125PS)?

sounds like a problem with the temp sender unit or its wiring.
