I currently have a 1.8 petrol and although she is a bit slow heating up but when she does she sits lovely at the half way mark and blows toastie hot air onto my feet.
I am looking this weekend at buying an old 1.9 Tdi on a W plate (it's a red i, i'm told tha means 115bhp?) as something to get us through some tough financial months ahead. It's a B5 auto with Tip avant, starts and drives well etc but has done 170k.
My only concern is that the temp gauge doesn't move at all, and the air coming from the vents is only 'warm', definitely not as warm as every other car I have owned.
It sounds like 'stat, or maybe temp sender, which I am fine with if so, but just wondered if there are any serious issues that could manifest in this way and cost me an arm and a leg?
