[Warning Light] temperature guage
#1
Hi i have a 2004 Berlingo 1.4 petrol. it drove fine, no problems at all, the temp gauge was a steady 70-80 degrees, however after about 30 minutes of driving the temp gauge shot up almost instantly, and the STOP warning signal came on. I stopped fearing the worst (head gasket etc.). After opening the bonnet the radiator fan kicked in, after about 10 minutes I checked the water, and the tank seemed fairly full. I re-started the car and the temp gauge stayed at 70 - 80 degrees, I drove for another 20 minutes to get home, and I left the engine on for another 15 minutes to try and replicate the STOP warning, but the temperature stayed steady around 90 degrees. the car seemed to drive OK throughout, though I think I could smell a faint smell of coolant steam - though couldn't see any obvious leaks.

You could need a new temp sensor also check the wiring and connection first .

I had the very same problem on a 2l hdi diesel, it was the temp sensor.
