I bought my van (1.9 td) just over a year ago and the temp gauge on the dash was working fine and the temp was showing 90 consistently. After a couple of weeks it stopped working and i didn't do anything about it. A couple of months ago i was fiddleing around in the engine and i wiggled a few bits (not really too sure what but i know it was on the right hand side of the engine looking at it) and the temp sensor started working again with the temp showing 90. This lasted for a week or so and then it stopped working again.

I guess i'll need to replace the sensor (which i've read on the forum sensor replacing guide is on the left hand side of the engine) but i was wondering if the sensor not working has any effect on the engine, for example, will the fans never come on if the dash temp never shows the engine getting hot. Not sure if it makes any difference but the hot air blower works ok still.

Cheers,
