Not 100% sure though so check that these are sane values

just a quick question, i had my car in diagnostics mode for a while, and the coolent temp heats up slowly after you start the car. but once it reaches 90, it just sits there. doesnt matter how i am driving, i find it hard to believe the engine can maintain exactly 90 degrees, is this a sensor problem? or should i just forget about it.
cheers

That is exactly what is supposed to happen. The thermostat is openeing and closing and the fan is turning on and off to maintain that temperature.

Im sure steam from under the bonnet would explain lots... but yeah, its meant to be like that, the heating up that is.. and I just checked those values stock standard, and they are exactly the ones I have, which seem to match most fords (aussies or not)...


Cheers
