156 1.9JTD m-jet engine temperature?
Hiya i stumbled over a thread which states that running temperature should be between 70-90 degs and if its down to 50-70mark after a good run then it burns more fuel than it should. And that the thermostat is probably shot... is this normal?
My 2.0l JTS was always sat between 70-90degs, but after a run round the Peaks today i noticed my JTD was maxing about 60degs which i thought was a little low... and saying that its never gone over 70degs im not sure if this is normal for a diesel compared to a petrol.
Does this mean my thermostat is shot?... if so... what kind of cost am i looking at for a new one and where under the bonnet is it, and is it a job i could do myself?
Also will be cleaning out the EGR valve when i get time
