Citroen Berlingo Multispace 1.8 petrol - temperature
#1
Music 
Hi all

First time poster on the forum, but hoping someone can help with what I think is an issue with my 1998 Citroen Berlingo Multispace.

Van is absolutely fine when on the motorway or on a run.  Temperature doesn't even reach the solid midline.  However, when idling/sat in traffic the temperature gauge creeps up to the line above the solid midrange line (prob not explaining too well - see attached pic).  It never reaches the top temperature line though and has, touch wood, never overheated, though when sat in traffic you can often feel the heat coming up from underneath the van.  Have had it checked over by the garage and my mechanic reckons it's nothing to worry about.  The fan seems to kick in as needed (I think - I always hear it when I switch the van off as the fan runs on for a minute or two).   

   

Any ideas as to what might be the cause?  All contributions/suggestions gratefully received.

Many thanks

GS

If your fan is cutting in and its not going into red you should be ok

Try a new coolant temperature sensor. They're cheap to replace and are responsible for where the temp gauge sits and turns on the fans.like most sensors they can be out of range.
