Could you provide what type of engine is in this vehicle? Is this a car that came from the states and was built here or sourced out of Europe?

When the error occurs pop the hood and check the physical temperature of the upper and lower radiator hoses, are they really too hot for the touch?

On the US built 1.4L turbo there are several temperature sensors, and temperature transmitters. The temp gauge in the car is just a voltage sensor I believe, where the Powertrain control module gets it's information is the temperature transmitter.

Vauxhaull Astra's share the same engine, and I think Opel's may as well.

You may be right with a sensor, the question is which one!
