Re: Hello, im new, clutch and thermostat problems on my 2.4 jtd
An update. Finally got correct thermostat and fitted it tonight. It was a pain... Someone suggested bending the egr bracket out of the way which i did, painstakingly trying to get it over the 20mm long stud, no chance, brittle stud, ping!!!! Anyways got thermostat off put new one in. Cut of broken egr stud from end of thermostat bolt and welded a new one on, refitted... Then i couldnt get the bent bracket onto the remanufactured stud, not enough room for grips, screwdriver etc... so egr now has one less bracket supporting.
Fitted it up with new jubilee clips where needed, plugged wires into new sensor, battery back in, key in, BONG "MOTOR CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURE, TAKE TO NEAREST DEALER" and both fans at full pelt... another quid in swear box and out with turbo pipe, battery, ancillaries box, take new sensor out, replace with old. Refit gubbins and IT WORKS. Now sits between 75-88. Oh yeah! thanks for all your help, hoping my egr pipe isnt going to fall off now, but seemed very strong without...watch this space!
