temperature guage barely moves - is my thermostat faulty ?
recently purchased a series two Spider and didn't notice at the time the temperature guage barely got to show above 50 degrees!
I gather from reading postings on this great forum that the thermostat itself may be at fault rather than the guage.
is there an easy way to check ?
I took the car out for a short drive 15 minutes and checked the hoses to the thermostat, all 4 were hot to the touch. But the guage had barely moved past the 50 degrees mark.
I think the fact that the guage had actually moved is a good sign that itself and the electrical connection works ?
Any experienced help and advice is very much appreciated !
