barryb Posted March 23, 2022 Share Posted March 23, 2022 Hi Since I've had my car the water temperature gauge has sat at just over 80°C as one would expect from an 83° thermostat. As my previous post I have just changed my water pump and thought that as recommended I would change to a 71° thermostat. I've driven the car for few days now and the thermostat still sits at just over 80°. There is a common belief that the gauge is just an idiot indicator and does not reflect the true temperature it's either cold, normal or overheating. When I have some time I will check the temperature via the OBD, but it just makes you wonder. Barry 🤔 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
