There is a sensor in the expansion bottle which holds the water. do you think that this sounds like it. There doesn't seem to be any other sensor in the radiator. Is this the same sensor that sends the temperature to the temperature gauge in the cabin? As the temperature gauge in the car seems to be working fine.
