    Default thermostat gasket

    im after a thermostat gasket for a y22dtr engine. so far vauxhallworldparts are the only option i can find, apart from vx themselves. do places like camberley auto factors, partco etc do them, i cant find any on their websites, part number is 90502878
    also, can i use this as a sealant http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_255217

    I would only use the original VX gasket and I believe there is no need to use a sealant. Enusre all faces are clean and you should have no problems.
    I think you will find the gasket is a VX part only. Why don't you get it from them rather than waste time looking around for one?

    Get a Vauxhall one and just ensure surfaces are clean and dry and all will be ok

    update, fitted, but its still not right. doesnt drop below 80 so thats good. but it doesnt get any higher than 83 on a mway run or round town. if i stop the car, engine off, then 10 mins later start again, then drive, after a few mins it hits 85, but no more. in town it seems to get cooler. like in reverse. worse i i turn a sharp corner, im thinking a sender unit for the gauge but i dont know where it is.ive recently changed the water temp sensor on top of the thermostat housing and now the thermostat itself. any ideas

    Mine runs about 87 but the dti is slow to get to temp anyway as it's an old agricultural lump this is to be expected

    I agree but 30 mins of 70mph surely would get it above 82

    Its worth checking the the hidden menu in the BC for the exact temperture. The dash gauge is only a rough guide. 83-85 it just right as diesel engines do not get as hot as petrol. What you will also notice is that when car is idling a diesel will cool down whereas a petrol engine will get hotter. The only tiime a diesel engine will get hottter is underload. The time to worry is when the temp gauge drops below 80 (unless it is extremely cold) when driving or rises significatly when idling. My 1.9 CDTi is 206 BHP and 360lb of torque, it runs a little bit hotter than standard 84-86 and might make 87-90 underload because I have a FMIC blocking the bottom vent on the bumper. I would not recommend covering the rad as there is no need for it and it may cause damage
