Hi Guys

I have a 2004 Nissan Hardbody 3.0L diesel 4x4 doublecab.

After driving the heat gauge moves up to it's normal temprature.
When the vehicle is stationary and idleling the heat gauge drops down in a flicking motion and then goes up to the normal temprature again.

The also happens when you drive in traffic en you pull away it drops slightly before going back to the normal temprature. When you drive and you are moving the temp stays constant at the right temprature.

I had a new nissan radiator installed less than a year ago. They also flushed the cooling system as far as I understand.

Any help or explanation would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Johan
