    Default Running Cold

    During this cold snap my 2003 Vectra 2l Dti has been running very cold, at most times below the 80 mark on the temp guage and it takes a long time for the heater to warm up. I am told that this is usual (this being my first diesel car) but I wondered if there is a quick, easy, and above all, safe way for me to increase the temperature that the engine runs at ?

    Or should I just accept that is what diesels do and wait for the summer ?

    They do take a while but within 8 mile it should be moving and you should be getting hot air,if it's slow and drops you might have a dodgy thermostat
