Hey Guys,

I have recently noticed that the temperature guage on my Mk1 55sx will rise over half way when I am going uphill and then shortly after it will go back to halfway. I have read that the guage at halfway is normal, however is it not uncommon for the gauge to differ slightly depending on gradient??

Cheers,

Willber.

Crap loads of mayo in oil filler cap :yuck: and liquid gushed out of the expansion tank near radiator, overheating like god knows what! (n)

Oops, thought it had what looked like mayo in oil filler but it must have been the street lights lol.

Just popped some coolant in the expansion tank and it runs fine now, I feel stupid!

Going to service it at the weekend though and get it running super sweet. (y)
