    Default Temps!!

    Guys,

    Was on a 400 motorway mile round trip today. 1.9cdti Auto Estate. 2 stroke oil mixed in with derv. Average speed - 70mph. Raining like f*** for most of the trip. I have never really bothered checking temps, but for some reason, kept an eye on it today, & it was 85-90!! Is this normal, or is it running hot?

    Would rather know before something goes bang!!

    Cheers.

    did my stat last winter, and since then it sits at 86, rising to 92 when in traffic.
    However, recently, it sometimes seems to stop at 84, especially at night. Its not even colder at night at moment which is odd.
    So to check it I put heater on full, the gauge dropped down to below 80....this is not right. I'm thinking that the thermostat could be starting to not close properly?
    Oh well....had the stat housing off so many times now could do it blindfolded.
