Strange Thermostat issue
Hi everyone, been a while since I've posted here, which can only be a good thing :P
I have been having an issue recently (very recently) with my thermostat, which was replaced in January. Basically, I've noticed when in traffic that the temp goes up... getting to around 100, 110 deg C. This would normally cause me to stop immediately, but before I did, I changed the inside air flow to point at the windscreen to clear the slight bit of mist on the windscreen. As soon as I did this the temp went straight down to 90 and stayed there.
There doesn't appear to be any 'mayo' in the coolant or white bits in the oil. The coolant is still at the correct level and the oil is always kept between the optimum levels
