Re: Is My Thermostat Knackered Or What?
I recently change the thermostat on my wife's car - got a pattern one from EB Spares at a good price. When I'd changed it, the temperature on the gauge wasn't much different (about 70 on the gauge in normal running) - which was disappointing. I didn't have time to take it out again and deceided to leave it 'til the following weekend.
Lo and behold, over the course of the week, the average temeprature in normal running climbed up again and is now just over the 80 mark on the gauge - even though the weather is much colder!
I can only put this down to the disc inside sealing a bit better after a few opening-and-closing cycles. Does that often happen?
