    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default How hot does your 1.9CDTi runin the cold weather?

    Just wondering if my thermostat has stuck open. It is struggling to get up to 80 degrees and has been sitting a lot less on the real cold days we have had lately. Cannot get the heater to blast out realy hot air like my other halfs Tigra. I know that petrol cars run lot hotter and I really only have noticed it since driving the Tigra. I had a thermostat issue on on my old Vectra C 1.8SXi which is a common fault on the X1.8XE engine. Sold it before I changed the thermostat. Just wondered if there was a similiar issue with the 1.9CDTi but I have never seen any posts relating to it (unless someone proves me wrong )
