Yeah it has been pretty hot.. last weekend was 43c and i was giving it a bit of a hard time. Then yesterday was 37c. I was just a bit worried cause it's not often that hot around here lol.

Do you think the heat would've contributed to the SMG issue aswell? I took it and had the diagnostics read by the mechanic and he said it was a sensor. Could it be because of the heat?
