could be the sensor someone should be able to give you a ohms reading to compare with if you hang around or do a search as i think its been mentioned more than once. have you checked your radiator is ok at the bottom as ive seen an 98 reg 156 with a bad rad that made it overheat all the time.

The fan will cut in and out.

Check the radiator and all the pipes. Also check the coolant strength, topping mine up with some neat coolant made a lot of difference.

if you wait untill its hot then feel the radiator at the top and at the bottom it should feel the same temperature..if its not then you either have a broken thermostat or the there is indeed ait in the system...also do as wrinx said,

BTW 90 deg is normal..the fan should come in at 92 deg.
