another problem with the car... not long ago i had to change my thermostat as it was running cold but now everything is running sweet ...just under 90deg......until tonight!!
i was sitting in the car, stationary with the car ticking over for about 15 mins, i had been driving and the temp was normal but then i noticed after sitting there at idle the temp had DROPPED to 80 deg.........surely when you sit there you temp goes up and the fan kicks in.
I decided not to drive it left it and got picked up.
Went back to pick it up to drive home and all seemed normal, it got to just below 80 deg and seemed to stay there for a bit, longer than usual, but did eventually pick up to normal temp.
Thought it may have sorted itself but when i got home , parked up and sat at idle again and it started to drop again
I have just searched this forum and on google and cant find a thing!!!
Someone please help iv just about had enough of this little niggly things!
Also i have no fault reading relating to this but have 0500 which is speed sensor or something along those line but read this could be due to the wheels spinning at differnt speeds due to the snow so il see how that goes but im not sure that has anything to do with my engine temprature!
Car is a 03 1.6 astra 16V
Can anyone help??
