Have had a slight glitch with the GTi so thought I'd share my experience. Randomly, indicated temperature would rise quickly, engine alarm would go, then gauge would drop back to normal.Took it to the dealer, diagnosed that it was a faulty temp sensor, but none in stock in Brisbane. They arranged for one to come overnight from Melbourne, and made alternate travel arrangements for me for 24 hours. Great service and all fixed under warranty. No cost, just a little inconvenience.

G'day Tarmac,My dealer said that it wouldn't have overheated, and from the movement of the gauge at the time, I think they are right.
A couple of times I saw the gauge rising from it's usual 93 deg. Up to max, alarm, and drop down to 93 again took just a few seconds. It's very unlikely that the actual temperature could change that quickly.
Is yours fixed now ?

I wasn't driving, my missus was and she said it went right around to the red and then dropped straight back down to normal and engine warning came up on dash,

Water and oil levels were ok ?!

Hi.
Peugeot dealers are recalling 208 Gtito replace the temperature sensor.

Aparently the factory had received a batch of faulty sensors which were installed in some cars!

Problem typically occures at around 3000km onwards.

I had mine replaced just beginnig of this week.

Call the dealer to book a date..

All the jobs are done free as you would expect!

How much would it cost to replace the suspect sensor?
I just had the same fault appear. First snow of the year may have caused the fault,as the car yesterday was ok!
