    Default Engine Tempreture Issue

    Hey guy's, wondering if anyone can help with this.

    I think the temp guage on my car is nackered. When the car has warmed up the heaters work as they should (i.e. blowing hot) but my tempreture guage reads 0, however if I drive around town in stop-start traffic the temp guage rises to normal.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Just changed the thermostat this weekend and now it reads normal again, my heaters did work still but it needed to be replaced. You can get it off pretty easy and test it in a pan of boiling hot water. Mine is a Z18XER also.

    I did order it from 247spares which is a glorified interface between you and loads of scrap yards! Quote was £54 (Used 90 Day Warranty) however by the time I got round to paying for it they had all gone. Ended up getting it from Ebay £90 approx with a year warranty.

    Very expensive for what it is and I have tried to remove just the thermostat from the housing but they are not joking when they say it is a sealed unit.

    You will need a new gasket seal as well but that came with mine. The housing is probably £70 as you can get thermostats for about £10 however with our newer engine models there does not seem to be a cheaper solution.
