    300tdi defender temp gauge fault?

    Hello all, Right, just a quickie. I have recently flushed my cooling system as part of a service. Since doing this the engine overheats within minutes of it running from cold. I have taken the thermostat out and this makes no differance. I have replaced the pump as it was squealing. Again no...
