I just bought my wife a Vx Astra Mk3 1.6 16v. 12 years old and runs like a dream. Great bodywork and clean interior, 37k miles from new with only 1 owner!
Anyway to the point, we were out on a driving lesson and she drove the car great. We got home and I noticed that the car was running alittle hot. The temp gauge was reading 100 degrees and the fan was running. Outside temp was approx 17 degrees.
I thought it was alittle odd but I wanted to ask you guys in the know if this is normal for that engine or should I be looking into doing some fault finding.
Some background info: just been MOT'd before purchase. Serviced last month (according to the trader but you never can tell).
I'm thinking of flushing the water system or maybe changing the thermostat.
Any advise / guidance would be greatly recevied.
Cheers and great looking site btw. I havent logged in for months!!!!!
