    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I noticed yesterday that the thermostat in the other half's 147 appears to be stuck open. When driving normally it doesn't go over 75C, when parked it rises to 90C and stays there, then when driving drops back down. This implies it's stuck open if I'm right? I can see EuroCarParts...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
