    On my 2.4 '03 Cabby, it is taking around twenty minutes to warm up. It's not just since the cold weather and the heater would bear out that the gauge is accurate.
    I'm thinking that the thermostat may be stuck open or even missing. Is this an excessive amount of time to warm up?

    Thanks

    20 minutes driving or when you turn the engine on and leave it without moving?

    @ mlody, 20 mins at idle (de-icing etc) or around 5 miles driving
    @ AndyC, is yours the 2.4 petrol engine?

    Thanks for the replies :)
