Help, my 156 takes more than 4km to reach operating temp
My 156 2.0 TSpark (2001), takes more than 4kms to get to operating temp!
The local alfa dealer in new zealand says this is perfectly normal. It does not sound normal to me.
I had this vehicle in south africa where it operated correctly the last time i used it before importing it to new zealand.
How long SHOULD it take to reach operating temp?
Also, after 2 kms, when in crawling traffic, the gauge shows 90c but as soon as i start speeding up the gauge drops to 70c, that also does not sound normal. I would have thought that the thermostat would keep the coolent temp level at 90c.
Does alfa have different thermostats for different countries? ie a different thermostat for south africa vs new zealand?
thanking all in advance
