2008 1.8tdci takes long to get up to temperature


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I bought a 2008 1.8tdci last week and noticed that the temperature gauge takes a while to get up to temperature. I was thinking the stat might be stuck open? Is there an easy way to find out without removing it? Seems to be a lot of people talking online about modeos taking ages to get up to temp

I've owned a MK2 1.8 TDCi for the better part of a decade and I've found it's normal for this engine.  The block is cast iron so takes a LOT longer to heat up than the more modern aluminium block 1.6 and 2.0 TDCi engines.
