Re: Temperature readings
The needle will swing more than in other cars as the sensor is real time, not float point average. It should move about a bit between about 85 and 90 depending on wheteher you are on a run, or in traffic. If the stat is stuffed, it won't reach 90 at all when on the move at moderate speed. The replacement is simple but fiddly. The stat and temp sender are available from dealers or motor factors for about £35 all in. The stat replacement is about 2-3 hours work. Search for thermostat change to find more info.
