    The brown sensor ^^^ was actually wrong one for mine. I needed blue 2 pin. Bit earlier you would have been lucky but it’s already gone to a good home. They are only about a fiver though it’s the changing it is the bother

    I am in no way doubting that your right. I just find it odd another person has said the light will throw it into limp mode, dosnt matter which sensor apparently. I do not know where he has gotten this information from. I will look trough rave...

    I went into a limp mode when I overheated. Was engine not gearbox as I have a manual transmission. The sensor should have a washer. [ATTACH]

    Sorry @Datatek , i didnt mean choke. I ment starvation :rolleyes: Anyhow, i changed the temp sensor today. Seems like its working atleast, (brown sensor) i havent road tested yet due to its leaking abit coolant out of it, where it threads in....

    95C is within the normal running temperature range, Nanocom volts are always lower than battery volts due to losses in the wiring. At the battery your should have 14.7 volts engine running and no less then 12.6 volts an hour after turning off....

    FIP uses ECM not guage. Dead lift pump may affect performance. Datatek has some numbers on working temperature. Next time I am on my PC I will see what my traces say but I would think 90 - 95C is correct.

    I just cant remember the car being a bugger to achieve 50mph without pedal to the metal? and isnt 95 celsius pretty hot for the car, when its 2 degrees outside?? Even with new radiator (the thin, modern core nissens) and viscousfan, and...

    Nanocom seems to get the battery volts wrong on my GEMS as well. Can't remember if reads high or low though, but wrong on every screen with battery volts.

    Im just so confused. Could it be the alternator throwing voltage spikes while im driving? i have no faults in EDC. nanocom claims i have 11.8volt battery with ignition on (stage before turning it on), engine off. I read 12.4 with a multimeter...

    this was the non thermostat side. On thermostat side where my old rads pipe was fallen down, this new one were indeed clipped up on the roof, exiting the bleed pipe. my temps look good, gauge, not.. Which sensor was the correct one for the...

    This is inside the new radiator. Non thermostat side. Got a baffle! You can also see the bleed pipe at top

    Got the new viscous fan(France-Norway in 17hours :eek::D DHL)! I ordered a Mahle but got a HELLA brand. Apparently the same after some googling. Gonna fill the car up with coolant and take a spin and hopefully my new radiator wont leak or...

    On the other hand, i confirmed the fan was seized. It was dirty. I tried to rotate the valve screw thingy in the middle. Nope, stuck! Does that mean my idle vibrations might dissapear? :eek::eek: anyhow, after a few hits with a hammer i got...

    WELL, theres been progress, and abit disapointment :oops: One of the botton tabs of the new radiator is broken off! Couldnt even find it in the package it came delivered in... Is that something crucial? I mean, both upper slides are good, and i...

    +1. More knowledgeable men than me designed it. The viscous will chew paper on startup and roar. As the engines warms to normal engine temperature it will quieten and can be stopped with a newspaper - if it cannot be stopped it is seized. If the...
