yet another problem (part 2)
The story so far..engine (2.0 t/s) only ran for a short while then stopped..restarted ok after 15mins but only ran for a few mins etc..
diagnosis tdc/crank sensor ,sensor changed engine now runs but very rough,taken back to garage, back on the computer, fault code indicates temp sensor flty...
week before crank senor changed, radiator failed, rad changed(by same garage) since then temp gauge hardly gets off the stop(50'c)..only rises to 70 when stopped in traffic......
I ve seen some posts...themostat/rad both faulty but cancel each other out so temp gauge looks normal at 90'c I can accept that the thermostat may be goosed but could it affect the running of the engine ?..presume engine temp is monitored by the injection cpu the sensor on the stat housing looks like its knackered..
anyone recently changed a stat/sensor...how much do they cost.
This year car has had power steering pipes changed, new rad, new crank senor and still needs work......Funny, I still like the car, but I'm starting to feel like a can of petrol and a box of matches may be my next purchase !!
