VAG-COM Release 409.1
Motronic ME 7.1.1G 0004
Software Coding : 00032
1 Fault found:
18613 - Performance malfunction in cooling system
P2181 - 35 - 00 - -
Keep in mind, I've read many other threads about this code.
My question is regarding the data that I've collected with the VAG-COM when on a 30-40 mins drive. From the measuring blocks, the coolant temperature in °C reached 97°C. This happened when I was pulling up to my place to park the car. I looked at this and looked at the temp gauge in the car and it showed a flat 90°C.
Now I've recently had 264/260 cams installed and a Neuspeed SRI. I also noticed on the invoice that the shop changed the green top sensor. Could they have installed a faulty one or should I be thinking about the thermostat? The car, jugging by the T° gauge seems to go up to the operating temp between 5-10 mins, which I think is normal.
Thanks for your input
