Re: Coolant temp fluctuations
I think I need to clarify - mine is nothing to do with fans or normal operating, getting hotter in stationary traffic, or on faster runs
I can be doing a constant low load speed, and the guage constantly goes up from appx 75 to 85, then down again, then up again, then down again, then up again, then down again....etc etc with the road vibrations/bumps it seems (very very smooth roads does not Seem to move)
When stationary this does not happen ,it operates normally (after a while SLOWLY get hotter and the fan cuts in at about 105, and it cools down again with this, the fan stops about 88)
Hence why the suggestion it is a wire bumping at earthing out seems logical - not that AR's are logical!! But this has happened after the varitor and rad was replaced, so in true AR tech fashion I am sure something have been disturbed (electrical) when doing these jobs, and so they have f***** it up! as they always do - fix one thing, break another in the process!
