True Alec

interesting thing now after a test run is that its new norm appears to be about 60-65% instead of the steady 50% prior to the work. though not getting any higher.

Running temprature

Hi,

Been driving the estate for the last week or so and noticed that standing still for more than a few minutes the temp climes to the top. open road for about a mile or so and its back dead centre.

Apart from thermostat, flushing the system what else would people recommend?

cheers
