Thanks Stef and Diesel. I think it's going to have to be a new waterpump-do you have any idea if this requires the cambelt having to come off?

Your advice has been really appreciated

Can I ask what might be a slightly naive question? If the waterpump was indeed at fault-would the car not overheat at other speeds? Just throwing it out there as it's only 50 mph +

I'll check the waterpump for corrosion when I get a second-I wouldn't have thought that at 36k much should be failing at all but I suppose you never know!

The fan is cutting in and out as it should be so we can rule that and the thermostat out...

Ideas are welcome as always as I think I'm going to have to change the waterpump-which is going to be quite costly I'd imagine on labour

Hmm noticed today that the top radiator hose is hot but the bottom one is stone cold under normal operating temperature. Suggests a circulation issue-blocked radiator or perhaps inefficient water pump?

Thanks for your reply. How can I check a faulty sensor? I replaced the thermostat and thermostat housing, which I thought would have fixed this issue...

Yeah pretty immediately-I'd say it takes 20 seconds to completely return to normal temperature...

I haven't noticed any water loss and the water is clean. Compression test happening on Monday. I just can't believe a head gasket on a car with so few miles
