Temp Guage

Hi all, was driving to work earlier tonight and noticed my Fairlanes temp guage was moving up and down. It seemed to be doing this only when under load, as there is quite a few hill climbs on the way. Could it be as simple as a loose fan belt slipping on the water pump?You've probably heard of this happen'n b4 but, I'm not sure what to do bout it. Gotta be something simple as the donk in her has only done 10,000km & the radiator is all new as well. Any help is appreciated.

Long live the EA!

Hey man, my EB does the same thing... if i get to a long acent the temp will go up too about half way... it will come back down when the fan starts up tho... nothing to worry about. Ive also just had my cooling system overhauled..

I also have had this problem for around the past 2 years, if I bag it then it goes all the way up for around 2 min then back to normal, Spoke to an electrician and he said that they would need the car for around 1 day to check everything out.

So I decided that since it has not hampered the car decided to leave it.

This is common especially when there is lots of crap between the radiator and the Aircon condenser.....since I cleaned the leaves and rubbish out the temp doesn't vary as much between load and unload.
just lift the little rubber seal at the top rear of radiator and hose down from above...quick fix

Re: Temp guage

Thanks guys,

Glad it sounds fairly normal then, just never noticed it before.

I'll make sure I keep an eye on the cooling system though and maybe give the system a flush and put some new coolant in it. I'll also check for any build up of crap between the air con condensor and radiator as well.

Long live the EA!
