Possible temp gauge problem
Recently my temp gauge has been sitting has been sitting on 70deg, whereas before it was normal around the 90deg mark and just below. It moves slightly over 70, but not as it did before.
Are there any sensors which I can check for the temp gauge, and is there anything else which may be causing the problem? With the aircon on the fan still seems to operate nomally.
Also the past week there has been a strange smell coming from the engine, a bit like a burning smell, or possibly a coolant overheating smell. Not sure if the problems are related.
Without taking it to Alfa, any idea what it might be? I've already had the AFM replaced, I have a BMC air filter, just had the timing belt and valves replaced after it went on me ($4,500 later), other than that the engine is standard. It's 5years old, done 57k kms.
Also, what's a good Alfa specialist in Melbourne Oz? Thanks.
