    Red face Engine cooling light?

    Hi all,i seem to be always asking questions all the time,you will be sick of it but your help would be apprecated. Ive noticed for a few weeks my electronically controlled engine cooling light comes on when iam driving only for a second or so then go's out,any ideas what it might be,the engine is'nt over heating sits at under or half way on the temp gage!My car has been been making a loud sort of a diesal sound when the engine heats up,when ive been driving for a while,ive taken it to a garage,when it makes the noise but they say they cant hear anything!!! i think its the waterpump,could the two be related!! sorry its a mk4 1.6 16v year 2000

    Wiring fault?
    Possible temp sensor failure?
    Are you sure the water is circulating around your engine? (check your expansion tank after its been running for a while if its hot its fine. You could have a sticking thermostat. Don't think it'd be the water pump but then again i'm not sure. I'm guessing the water pump either works or it doesn't. As your not over heating I'd guess is that the water pump is fine and the water will be circulating around your engine. My best guess would be sticking thermostat. There only a couple of quid so may be worth just replacing as a matter of course.
