Engine running hot, rad?
My temp is getting high when stopped or moving slowly in traffic, It's going over the 3 quarter mark. When moving it goes back to just over 90, but does fluctuate a bit at motorway speeds. I need a new thermostat as in cooler weather it takes ages to ge hott, now gets hot in 5 to 10 minutes. The fan is coming on at high speed so I'm guessing radiator is partially blocked, also losing a small amout of coolant. Looked at rad and there is evidence of leakage, greenish and white residue on several places of the rad. Could the rad be getting blocked by this residue on the inside?
Seen rads on eBay, new for £36 delivered.
