How long to warm up a 156 jtd 1.9

Hi all

Im just after a bit of re-assurance my car is warming like others.

How long does is take, (either miles or mins) on average for your car to get to 80/90deg.?

Thanks all


I have fitted a new radiator, new thermostat and new coolant.

The car does warm to 80/90 now (it never did).

It drives great and economy seems ok.

Im just curious as it can take 30mins driving in the latest cold wave of weather.

Mine never gets above about 70, unless on a hot day.

It takes about 5-10 mins to warm up - depends how enthusiastic I am, or what I get stuck behind :-)

Sounds about right in this cold weather.

I've 2, 2.4 JTD's both which had new stats this year. Thought I'd just warm then up today and after 1 hour both engines were still at 70 deg. Take them for a run and yes about 30 mins to 90 degrees.
