      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

Hi, our 51 plate fabia 1.4mpi has the annoying problem of the water temp light flashing when the car is started cold each morning. After a few minutes it goes off and stays off, presumably when the temp sender unit has warmed up. I suspect a sender unit problem, anyone know the fix for this one? The water coolant is at the correct level and has no leaks. I guess a sender unit will be an easy fix, but not sure how much one will cost.

Expansion bottle needs replacing, or if you can get at the contacts inside the bottle, clean them.

If you get a flat bladed screwdriver and scrub it up and down the "prongs" inside the expansion tank that should cure it hopefully.

I had the same problem in my Leon Cupra Tdi and the screwdriver method worked.

thanks for the replies, think I will drain the tank down to get to the prongs, try the scraping method and if that fails buy a new tank on ebay(£14.99 delivered )
Thanks again for your help.
