I have a 03 fusion 1.4 tdci . Its got the led temperature guage. Later models came with propper dial guages
Quite often when I have only covered a coupleof miles from cold this guage flashes on and off and is accompanied by a red temperature symbol (thermometer in water).
This lasts for a couple of minutes and then everything goes back to normal. This dosent happen when the engine runs further and is up to full working temperature. Does anyone know what is going on here?
