2.2 oil temp sensor

My brera has developed the erratic oil temp problem mentioned on a few other threads where the the guage gets up to temp, bounces a few times then drops to the bottom.

Annoyingly my car is just out of warranty and from reading the threads it sounds like it's not a simple job to pop in a new sensor. Does anyone know what sort of money I'm looking at?

Secondly does the engine management use the information from the oil temp sensor or is it just there to have the nice guage on the dash? If it's just for show i'd be less inclined to shell out.

I've got the same and I'm awaiting the dealer I bought it from to get the part and then they are coming to collect my car. They told me it was nothing to worry about and the engine management doesn't use the info but that was just their word I suppose. Hopefully someone will clarify for us

Spoke to a dealer yesterday. Was told that on the 2.2 it's a 4 hour job, the part is about 180 quid which puts the bill somewhere around 650! I have just remembered about the 6 month RAC warranty that came with the car...lets see if it's worth the paper it's written on!

An Indy will charge you a third of that

Fingers crossed for the warranty!
