Hi Im David, first thing i would suggest is removing the connector for the engine temp sensor and makinf sure theres no corroaion inside of it and that the wiring looks ok. then plugging it back in. let me know when you get to that point. thanks

Will do, im pretty sure it has something to do with this. i have grreat heat so I assume Im getting flow from the pump, and the thermostat itself isnt stuck open, takes the same amount of time to heat up as normal, weather im in idle or on the go.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Im at work at the moment, so it will be later on that i get to that. Is my train of thought correct/logical?
