Good morning folks

I've bought a mk3 astra sport X20xev (2.0 ecotec) and having a few issues hoping yous can point me in the right direction. First problem is coolant gauge is not working on the dash, heating inside the car is blowing warm and does not appear to be overheating even on a drive. Sensor has been replaced but has not cured the issue. Second issue I am having is it is hard to start and is winding over a lot before starting. Are these issues linked? Any help much appreciated

Many thanks

have you scanned it ? .. any fault codes on it ?

if its pre-95, with no OBD port, youll have do it the old fashioned way. fault finding/testing.

it might have corrosion on the sensor connector, or a corroded/broken wire on the connector or circuit possibly,.
check your getting power, earth, and signal, through the connector plug.

starting issue could be related to something else, but a bad temp sensor, can cause starting and running issues, so id look into that first, as it appears to be the most obvious issue, with the gauge not working.
