I take it you have not tried anything yet ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing other than to restart it,, it’s been like this for 24 plus months

2 items really coolant temp sensor could be going to ground after that I would go for the gauges itself which is more likely does it bong at you to tell you it is overheating ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It does

That is the annoying thing when are you next driving it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It because its always on a fast road

does it keep bonging until you restart ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
then the temperature goes straight down to normal

I have a cheap solution if you want that ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That would be great
Thank you

Disconnect the plug on the engine temp sender and fit a aux gauge so you can still monitor engine temp cheap and simple and no bonging.
