    Default engine temp

    04 1.9 cdti 150

    having read lots of posts here about engine temp cant seem to get a definite answer, its cold out i know but my deisel is running at a very low temp, i rn abbout 7 miles to work in the morning and the guage hardly moves, heater get warm after a while. surely car should heat up and stay at a set temp? what temp is that? I supose the bst test would be to start car from cold and hold the radiator top and it should stay cold until car temp guage is hot, yes?

    Vehicle : M5

    Trim : Nothing needs adding

    Engine : 5.0 V10

    Year : 07

    Mileage : 37000

    Default

    If you are only going 7 miles it probably won't move mine goes to approx 78 - 80 degrees at the moment and in the summer 85 degrees and I travel 60 - 70 miles to work but the cold air will keep the temperature down if you want to test it take it for a run to get it warm and then stop and let it tick over for 15-20 mins and then see what the temperature reads if it is still not moving change the thermostat but test it first as they ain't cheap and it takes about an hour to do.
