it sounds like air in the system as the sender unit may not be submerged
in coolant when braking or turning hard. bleeding the system may have a
special way to perform this. is the radiator top, below the top of the
engine, if so air will be trapped in the top of the engine, you may have
to bleed with the front of the car on ramps and/or look for a bleed
point near the top of the engine. their may be a coolant hose up top
somewhere where you can do this. run engine warm and while adding
cooolant open bleed point till coolant comes out. if this doesn't work,
you can try changing the sending unit, very inexpensive.

Thanks the the info, the radiator bleed point is at the top of the radiator
and I think it is slighlty higher than the engine. The last attempt to
blled it I forogot about eh radiator blled point and only bled at one of the
points on the coolant pipes. Will have another go today.
