Hello, I'm new to the site and have a question:
I just purchased a 1995 146 1.6 twinspark engine and was told that the radiator had just been flushed and a new thermostat put on. Well the temp indicator will rise to above 80 and the light will eventually come on. When i'm driving through an area with a decline and basically let the car coast the temp will go back to normal and may or may not rise again depending on the driving conditions...It seems as though if you are working the engine(inclines) the temp will rise. I'm really not sure where to go with this i'm just looking for suggestions.
Also the heater doesn't blow much hot air, it does off and on, if the temp is rising the air blows cooler, if it's normal it blows hotter. Running the heater has no effect on the temp, and I have seen no water leaks anywhere.
Sorry for the lengthy message. Just at my wits end. Any help would be appreciated.
