    Hi
    Yes that looks right
    059 919 501A 4 pin green one
    The old one tends to be black

    I have seen a very very rare couple that are different , but 99.9% are that one

    Does you temp take ages to go up, as i have this problem, leave the car running and after about 5 mins of running the gauage starts to rise...

    Mine takes a fair old while to warm up, about 10 ins of driving, more on a cold day and I've replaced both the stat and the CTS. I guess thats just the way it is with mine.

    It does get to 90 though, and before I changed the stat it used to never get there. Change your stat for sure!

    It's more likely To be thermostat rather than temp sensor, do a search here, they tend to get stuck with a small gap letting coolant To go around before the engine war
