Hotter running V6!?
Haven't posted anything for a long time ,maybe the car has been reliable?!
I have just returned from hols in Yorkshire and noticed on the homeward stretch that the temperature guage was not really dropping down to below 85 degs and the oil temp was quite high at 80 odd.
Before the holiday I flushed out the water system and stuck some slick 50 fuel sytem treatment in the fuel tank. I have used this before with favourable results. I also noticed that the fuel consumption was great at nearly 350 miles on a tank for a V6, 350 miles for a v6???
This was not normal so I have changed the thermostat. No real change.
Am I right in thinking that the water temperature sensor next to the thermostat will have a direct impact on how much fuel is fired in to the engine. I assume over fueling produces a cooler running engine and under fuelling will cause a hotter engine.
Anyone out there got any ideas as I am tempted to go and get a second hand escort!
