Uneven engine temp
#1
Dear forum,

After having replaced spark plugs and brakes, everything was fantastic with the little Lingo. I was in Nirvana lugging furniture, the mother-in-law, the dog and myself around town. Furniture - because we're moving.
Tonight, though, while waiting to pick up my better half and her mother, I noticed the temperature gauge going past the 90 degree-mark. :censored:

I still haven't received my odbII fault code-terminator, but I do have some premature questions for you:
- if I can't see a leak, and if the expansion tank is between max and minimum, it's probably either the sensor or an electronic fault. Should I try to reset the BSI? Is this the way to do it? http://www.bba-reman.com/content.aspx?co...ot_process

It could also be a fan problem.

Mine will go past 90 deg if I'm sitting in a queueue for more than about 5 or so minutes. Seems perfectly normal to me.

Well, it was low on coolant, so I topped it up, seems fine now.
However, pulled out of work today, spotted under the engine, seems to leak from somewhere near to the left front wheel. As far as I can see it's from a hose having something to do with the powersteering. Means going back to the garage.

**** and ***.. getting tired
