I did read somewhere that Rover did a fix on the temperature gauge and it stays little bit lower than the middle even if the the real temperature is higher! Is that true? If yes is there any way to fix it and go up and down normally?

Thank you for your time!!!

This is 'normal' for most cars - the engine temperature will constantly change depending on engine load etc, as the thermostat won't respond to changes immediately.

It's damped to read the same between around 75-115 degrees from memory.

I've found that the temp gauges generally have 3 outputs:

1) it's not warm
2) it's warm
3) the engine is literally, on fire/temperature of the sun/melted aluminium


Might as well be ruddy replaced with a bulb that says "warm" tbh

Thank you for your reply, all of you! It is not OBD 2 though!!!
Ah yes apologies ive just seen the age of your car and I know from having a 1996 214 that the ecu is fairly limited to what you can do with it. I wonder if the temp gauge sensor feed can be converted to a digital display as surely its just a measurement of resistance that feeds it?

Thanks
