Thermostat opening temperature, is this the right stat for my 1.8T ?
Hi again, having purchased a thermostat as advised in the previous thread i made im a little unsure if it the correct one.
Its a Gates item from ebay, (Never had any trouble with Gates items tbf) the listing stated it would fit the A4 1.8T AWT engine, (which i have) but having recieved the stat and typed its part numbers into google, its giving fitment for Fords and Vauxhalls, nothing for Audi 1.8T.
(Original listing) AUDI A3, A4,S3 QUATTRO,TT,TT QUATTRO 1.8 20V 98-07 THERMOSTAT | eBay
It also says opening temp is 92 degrees for this particular stat, another site stated 91 degrees.
Cant find too much on 1.8T stat opening temps, but from what i have found, it seems to b e 88 degrees? (could be wrong)
Is 92 degrees too much and can anyone identify if this stat will fit my AWT? The stat has 54mm printed on it.
I dont want to pull everything apart only to find its the wrong part and im left with no motor.
Here is a pic of the stat. Thanks.
