New to the forum. GTV owner. Hello everyone.

Am looking for a bit of advice & help. Just recently my GTV has been showing some signs of a fault with the colling system. The problem is that when the car is stationary or moving very slowly the temp gauge moves very quickly from about 60C to above 90c after which the fans kick in - this does the job of coooling temporarily but after a while the temp rises again (& the fans kick in again). I took the car into my local Alfa specialist who after putting the car through electronic diagostics suggested that the temp/clock/fuel gauge unit might be faulty - actually they said that my temp gauge was out of calibraion. I managed to get hold of a new unit but the same problem persists. Has anyone come across the same problem and know what the solution is?
