    Default 308 Engine Coolant temp

    Hi all. I have a 2011 308 with a 1.6L petrol engine. Recently the engine temperature gauge started behaving erratically going from normal to redline in one or two seconds with the engine management warning light coming on with STOP. As quick as the gauge goes up it also goes back to normal. A visual of the engine bay sees the radiator an acceptable temperature, radiator hoses seem ok, not hard from over pressure and the overflow tank a normal level with no boiling/steam. Also as expected the fans kick in to actually make the radiator element cool to touch. My thoughts are the temperature sensor is U/S. Got a new sensor and went to replace it, presumed it to be on the thermostat/radiator hose housing that Peurgeot call the (Engine Water Outlet Tank). Could not find the sensor and it looks like the sensor may be integral to the housing as an electrial connector plugs into the housing. Is this the case for the AU 308 that the complete housing needs changing if the sensor is gone.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance

    Is that the EP6C motor? It has a thermostat device built-in.

    The plastic garden hose and clamps do nothing for me. If it is a blanking off device there are better ways. Blanking caps are available from Repco etc.

    Not my doing. It's the only photo I found online looking into the valve.

    Yes EP6C engine. But do believe now the thermostat is stuck and its not the sensor. Unfortunately its $260 to buy and is the complete housing in one unit

    The UK Ebay firm, Neat Car Parts, is half that price. I don't what the freight charge would be, but you could be well in front.

    I'd be a bit suspicious about a diagnosis that a stuck thermostat would cause the temperature gauge to go from normal to redline in "one or two seconds".

    Still if the outlet tank contains both the thermostat and the temp sensor, it doesn't really matter
    Regards,
