    Hi all, just had a fantastic first run in the car, however the temperature guage never even got into the blue let alone beyond.
    I'm not sure if this is an easy job if you're not mechanically minded but perhaps there are some simple checks to determine the problem that someone could suggest.
    Many thanks,
    Julian.

    Take the connector off the temp sender unit, the sender is screwed into the engine block, touch the connector to earth, if the gauge then moves you have a dead sender unit. I have new ones in stock.
