    Engine not getting warm

    Morning,

    I fitted the 2.0 TFSI coil pack last night which has sorted my misfire problem but I have noticed over the past week that the engine has stopped getting warm when driving, the gauge gets 1 notch above cold. I thought that would have been due to the coil pack but sadly not. It doesn't drive on full power either, hopefully due to this.

    Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? A thermostat perhaps or sensor somewhere?

    Thanks

    Will

    No fault codes, the heater is luke warm. Changing the temperature to high doesn't make a difference to the actual heat.

    Would that stop the car pulling properly and/or the turbo not boosting properly?

    Could anyone provide a link to somewhere to buy a replacement please? I have been looking on eBay but there are some at £6 and some at £109!
