Coolant temp and oil temp problems

Post by Matt282 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 5:10 pm

Hi hoping someone can give me some advice!

I have a 2007 disco 3 Manual and the coolant temp gauge kept on dropping down off the scale and driving it for a while and then a random misfire more of a hunting in idle would start when pulling up to traffic lights etc. I learned to dip the clutch as late as possible to stop this issue.

And now the red light on the dash has come on under the coolant light, scanned it with my diagnostics and looked at the live data and the oil temp is sitting at -13, I take it this is just a sensor?

Any advice would be a great help
Thanks in advance

Yes sensor - if you are quick and have lots of rags and trays and don't mine getting oil up your sleeve you can change the sensor without dropping all the oil out - but is cleaner to just change it anyway!

Thanks it’s due a service soon anyway, Two birds one stone and all that!

Do you reckon it could be related to the water temp problem as well?

Thanks again

Yes as they’re linked on the same signal lines.

Change the oil temp sensor and that should also fix yo7r stalling problems as the car changes fuell8ng strategy when it thinks it’s too cold.
