Not getting hot 1y

Postby kit » 23 Jul 2011, 13:01

Just these last few days my temp gauge has failed to reach halfway and drops down again as soon as I am rolling, it always used to go to halfway quickly and stay there with both engines, no idea why as nothing has been changed?

thermostat stuck open ?
once you get on the move the cool air on the rad will drop the temp again.the thermostat is at the very bottom of the engine and any moving crud in the system can get stuck in the try that after cleaning up your connections(its one of them on the back of the head :ok )
