The 97°C you mention is it the temperature reported by the Engine ECU?
Or it it a read out from the gauge?
Do the car still get warmer when you drive it hard?
Yes same issue with new pump, when it reaches 97 the slow speed kicks in, and this is not a gauge issue as i read that through MES, the first speed Kicks in at 97, could this be engine temp sensor issue ? that it sends the data to the ECU at 97 ? could be that ? And is this the normat behaviour for the CF3 2.5 v6 ? or is there is another engine temp sensor that it reads for example at 92 ? i need answers :'(
