right well today i got stuck in a traffic jam. my headgasket has jsut been replaced so i ruled that out pretty much straight away enless there is a problem with that but no milky substance etc.
so i thought maybe it could be the thermostat but basically what happens is
when moving the temperture stays between 80-92 and then as soon as you stop within 5 mins of being stopped it then goes from 85 straight up to 100 and then over 100 if you stay unmoved anylonger?
anyone else had this problem.
so then i thought i would try the fault code thingy with brake and acclerator pedal and it came up with fault code p0100 then i have looked now and thats a aitflow meter fault code but there are no syptoms i.e rough idle etc but i have extended the wires but doesnt seem to not be workin as it still pulls boosts and drives as it should accept for the overheating problem
also could this overheating problem just be temp sender problem?
also the other thing is that the car only has 2 litres on antifreeze in it at the moment is this enough for a Z20LET? as i thought maybe there was a bit of water had frozen in the rad pipes causing a blockage?
anyone shed any light on this? if so help would be greatly appreciated!
