for as long as I remember my 1.8 tdci has taken ages for the temperature dial to go up to working temp(just below half on the dial on mine)
as id never drove a car similar to it I didn't know if it was normal so did nothing
but I've just noticed that the blowers are actually blowing warm air within about 2mile(5 mins-ish) but it still reads that its not even started warming.
I can sometimes go to work 12 miles away and the dial has barely even moved!!
is this normal??
