eng temp and irratic idle problems
Hope some one can help I have a 159 2.4 diesel ***** the engine struggles to reach running temperatue in the winter running at about 2/3 its normal running temperature even in the summer it very rarely stays at the normal temperature dropping off when moving in traffic ,classic themostat fautl! My mechanic checked the themostat out and found no fault.
The more serious problem is that when the temperatue nears normal the car idles irratically only reverting back to normal when the temperature drops, Ive been told that the temperature sender also feeds the ECU for the fuel injection could that be the problem, if so how big a job is it and where is it fitted! Ive had a quick look but drew a blank. The car itself drives great plenty of power and performance but the poblem as been here for a while now and I am pretty sure the 2 faults are connected as the fault appears consistantly when normal running temperature is reached. hope some one out there might be able to help
