I've just noticed my gauge isn't goin up as it should now either although I am getting hot air through the cabin no probs. is this to do with the coolant temperature sensor? I have had the coolant bottle bolts out a few times recently whilst removing the bulkhead extension etc does this sound like a bad connection on the sensor?
