Hi,

My girl friend is the proud owner of a 52 plate 1.9 HDI 206, on starting the car yesterday afternoon, after the car had been sitting for approx 3 hours, the temp gauge rocket to the top and STOP 'engine overheat' warning came on. She turned the engine of and phoned me in a panic, i said leave it a minute and try again. When the ignition was turned back on, the gauge dropped back to a accurate reading.
Would be greatful for any thoughts you ladies and gents have?

I am in 'the trade' myself ( BMW Tech ) and have heard horror stories of fuel filter housings breaking up when trying to unscrew the top, is this true or rubbish by people who know nowt!

Cheers John

Overheating

Hi John,

Get the car on to a scanner . you will probably find the Coolant temp sensor is faulty therefore giving you false readings..

Not sure on the fuel filter..if not sure leave it to the mechanic..
