    I've suspicious of my thermostat since getting the car nearly 12 months ago.

    It's a late 2011 350cdi (265hp) and it seems to hover around 80 on the gauge even with a good long run.

    Measured it today using a bluetooth obd reader and it settled around 76-78deg C. I am aware the should be operating nearer to 90deg C.

    Anyway, ECP and GSF don't have one listed, which is a pain. Do we have any associations on here with any main dealers who offer a club discount or similar? Thought it work an ask.

    Thanks.

    They're full of wax which reacts to temperature, that wax leaks when the seals fade. It's a sliding mechanism in an extreme environment, so doesn't last forever.

    Agreed, we sell the inserts for some Gm Models, not forgetting the Housing comes with a sensor, WHat you can find is the Insert doesn't fit quite right, then the sensor packs up further down the line. Tbh Id just buy a Whole new unit complete with everything you will need.
