Hey guys new as of today and was gunning it everywhere then traffic slowed down and was slowly moving it was raining all during this then all of a sudden engine heat gauge spiked so i turned around and went to nearest servo stopped and turned off car. thermos where still running so i poured water over engine and waited 5 mins then hopped back in and drove home as driving home the gauge kept spiking up and down so when i got home stopped and left car running and gauge slowly went to 3/4 then dropped back to the usual 1/4. took it for a spin and as i was driving around gauge was spiking up and down again. just wondering if anyone had the same problem and what the outcome was and if any got any suggestions?? cheers

When its doing this, does your heater blow hot air if you turn it on?

It's called karma. Driving around in the rain like a fruitloop. Nice.
