    Temp gauge

    Just picked up my car earlyer today & as i drove it 22 miles back home i clocked that the temp gauge was not working, But when i was waiting at the lights the gauge moved but only about a cm or so.

    My mate (ownes a astra coupe) says that its the thrmostat.

    Is this right??

    Thanks in advance.

    It is indeed by the sound of it...

    Either a cheap job or a costly one depending on what engine you have and whether the cam belt needs to come off to do it...

    There was a post on here yesterday about replacement therms that can go in your top pipe which may be of interest...

    Thanks for that.

    I was looking all the fuses over & found a 7.5 amp one had gone so put a new one in & the temp gauge seems to be working now.
