156 Temp guage reading max temperature
Hoping you can help me resolve a weird little issue.
I've just finished doing the heads on a 156 V6, its running perfectly, I flushed to coolant system a few times and got the car up to temperature each time. I filled the coolant system for the final time with antifreeze and water, got all the air out. all was fine.
I then did a throttle reset, after that I wanted to take it for a drive and noticed the temperature guage was right at the top.
I checked the temp via diagnostics and I got a normal reading so I know the temp sender is probably ok...
I've tried a few things to try resolve the issue... I've left the battery disconnected for 15 minutes, done 2 other throttle resets but the guage still goes right to the top every time, even when the engine is ice cold.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanx in advance
