Hi, I am after a favour from anyone who has the V6 2.5TDi to see what their oil and water temp are once the car has warmed up.
I have a horrible feeling that the thermostat has gone but want to see what peoples oil temps are at to rule out the water temp sensor.
I did some 'testing' tonight and after driving for about 15 mins I gave it some welly for a good few miles until the brakes started to fade and the water temp then read around 79oC and the oil temp read approx. 82oC. After stopping to fill up and then drive 4 miles home normally the water temp had dropped to 70oC and the oil to 65oC.
Thanks in advance for any help.
