Hi All,

Im a bit wet behind ears here myself :b

My heater is not the best but dose warm the car.

How easy (or not) is the thermostat to get to and change? (I have a 1.6 2004)

I would go and have a look but its -12.3 Brrrr

Have something to contribute?

Thanks for the info, I agree is hard to get a happy medium. I had a look and saw where I think the thermostat is, it looks like it is below the Distrubuter. Please feel free to correct me if Im talking noncence lol

also Would that be 11 for a proper Ford thermostat?

Hi all. Finally got round to changing the thermostat :rolleyes: things have improved a little but heaters not getting as hot as they should :angry: i have now noticed that the cooling fan seems to be cutting in before the engine reaches normal working temp, is it possible that i now have a faulty temp sensor that is causing this to happen?? if so where is it located on the engine? Bit annoying because the engine is running well otherwise went for a run yesterday did 170 miles with no probs .
Is there something else i can check. Any ideas appreciated..
