    Default no movement in temperature gauge

    I've just solved a cold start issue by replacing my glow plugs. 3 turned out to be defective but replaced all 4. It does start loads better than before but not perfect. I've noticed that the temperature gauge just does not move anymore. Done a 50 mile round trip today and the needle remained flat at the bottom. The heaters got nice and hot a few miles into the trip so don't think its a thermostat issue. Does this sound like the temp sensor?

    Thermostat. Heaters will get hot. But much hotter when you change the 'stat
