Re: Please Help 156 tw

From the deathly silence.....I guess no one has any definite ideas....

It is difficult to diagnose problems by remote control, and to be honest the symptoms you describe don't match the common problems...Usual suspects would be MAF - but that doesn't normally create high temps....or maybe jammed thermostat causing the temp sensor to send weird messages to the ECU.....

If its still under the warranty, get it bounced back......

Sorry can't help more.
