Water Temp at Tickover in the cold weather
Hi, hope you can help with this strange one.
GT 1.9JTD 2005 which runs perfectly. Engine gets up to temp, sits bang on the centre line but in the very cold weather while idling in a traffic jam the needle drops to quarter way.
Now i thought it might go up a bit but i can't understand why the temp drops. The fan cut's in and out as i think it should and as i say car runs fine. Once i leave the traffic jam temp gauge returns to normal.
I wondered thermostat but again why would the temp drop?
Any thoughts gratefully received.
