Re: Thermostat change on 2.4jtd 10v
hard to say really, not looking too bad from what I remember (I am in Portugal the car is at home) it was hot both top and bottom of the rad but not sure if that would be normal for a blocked one just letting enough through... temp rises pretty quickly when on boost (need to de-coke my vnt to as it is overboosting and going in to limp mode but think that is just something else to add to the list of stuff!! Found a great artical on doing that job if anyone is interested do a google for "vnt repair" and look at the tdiclub forum entry, good pdf in there different model vnt but same should apply, will do mine soon and probably post pictures and findings)
probably do the rad at the same time, anything else it could be though? does fueling do stuff to the temp like running lean in a petrol motor?
