Driving home tonight on the M25 and noticed my temp reading around 74. Turned the heaters on full pelt and after a few mins it dropped to 70 (flatlined basicly)
Got onto street roads and it started to rise to 80 ish.
Sat parked with the engine running and after a few mins its back to 91.
The heat coming out of the vents is only just warm too.
The vec drove fine whilst all this was happening.
My motor is a petrol 1.8 vvt sri 2006 with 91.5k on the clock.
What i need to know is it still ok to drive until the weekend, is this a sign of a thermostat starting to go belly up, how much roughly to correct and does anyone close(ish) want to fit it for me. Monies would exchange of course.
