HI, I wonder if anyone has any thoughts.
My 2.0TS has suddenly started running hot , when I say suddenly I may not have even noticed before but last weekend I had ( rare occasion!!) the air con on and noticed the temp gauge started to rise towards midway between 90 and 130.
It kept creeping up and I checked fan under the bonnet.. It was on high speed.
The only way to bring it down back to 90 degree was to put the internal heater on and put it on 'hurricane'.
That worked almost immediately and it came down to 90.
Soon as I turned fan off and put heater to cool it started up again.
Took it my garage who wanted to charge me 8 hours plus new cambelt/waterpump/etc etc.
Cambelt was done 4000 ago but unfortunatley the previous owner didn't do the pump.
Are there other things I should try first before spending any ££?
