Vernet Thermostat

Vernet Thermostat

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi chaps,convinced my stat isn't working correctly. Sits just above 70 deg,yet prolonged stationairy/idle cooling fans cut in around 90 deg( on guage)..pointing to faulty stat as temperature guage must be correct.

can anyone vouch for brand..Vernet or Facet,yet have been told pointless changing stat by specialist as it will only last a year?!

coolant top up..think i need pink is this readily available? Halfords or has to be Alfa?

2005 1.9 16v diesel

any help/info welcome!
thanks
Sol

Firstly don't trust the gauge, mine reads 10deg below the correct reading (as witnessed by FiatECUScan). To be honest, the genuine Alfa stats are so poor, I'd imagine any aftermarket one should be at least as good.

If the coolant is pink, then it's redilly available from Halfords and other car places- don't waste your money with Alfa stuff!
