Faulty temperature gauge/losing power/engine fan
2010 Seat Leon 1.6

Ok so the engine fan seems to be running all the time. The temperature gauge is up and down throughout all my journeys and to top it off the car has started to lose power when the temperature gauge raises extremely high. I've had the car hooked up to serveral computers which have all said there is no fault with the car and the brain is reading a normal temp. Really don't know what the problem is. Any ideas?

Faulty coolant temp sensor ? Assuming coolant level o.k ? Could also try bleeding coolant system if not sensor .
