How old is your 156? The thermostat is apparently a problem area and they often go after changing a rad. I had a new rad sept and mine has been reading very cold (<70 after prolonged driving) although the engine is clearly hot (heaters fine etc).
Could be the guage but more likely the stat. Has fuel consumption increased? Do the revs ever surge when going into neutral? I'd suggest changing the stat costs about £40 and not hard to fit (there's a guide on here somewhere).
Have just booked mine in for service and new stat next week, will report what happens!
I have just fitted a new radiator on my 156 jtd, rad went on ok but now temperature gauge is not working, car heater working fine.
Can anyone shed any light
