noo its got coolant in it, it is very odd though its like the temp gauge is wired to the speedo or something, i'm guessing i have some wires crossed or something.

its all bled up and its got coolant, im goin to check all the wires because i dont know if it could be a loose ground, the car doesnt overheat when its stood, the fan doesnt even kick in, cheers for your feedback every one.

is it just ur temp gauge playing up? or is it ur fuel and rev gauges aswell?

Mine was doing this (40secs on shows it better), both the fuel & temp gauges go right up and tacho does what it wants.
