slight niggle - may be fine i dunno
after santa pod at a steady 80mph the temp guage rose to just under the 90 and fell - up and fell - up and fell. now the guage has previously sat at a constant 82 ishh during 85% of driving with it only going up when stationary.
now i have 2 ideas :
1. it was 14c on sunday eve and the temp guage was up and down due to the higher temp? and the added cs3 settings now on the car - now in the last 2 months the guage has set at 82f when the outside temp is 2 or 3c on motorway speeds
2. im sure i do have a slight coolent whiff through the vents 1st thing - now im not losing coolent and when the temp guage rises it does go down to 80 and then fluctuates as above - again around 12c. so matrix or just exterior weather changes????
after 5 mins driving it now goes over the 80, then back down and so on and a week ago when it was cold it took longer to rise - more like 10 mins - i contributed that to the change now in outside temp and cs3 remap perhaps now making temps higher but temp changes like this have me on a slight edge thinking - matrix on its way or head gasket starting - any ideas or am i a little paranoid as all this has only started since the warmer climate over the last 3 days
