    Hello all, my thermostat is stuck open I believe. The guage is only about 1/3 at its highest, read earlier that this is the cause. Where exactly is the thermostat located on an 05 1.9 tdi 150 bhp Vector Sport. What is the torque setting for replacement as well. Thanks all.

    Just noticed that the temp gauge isn't working on my 93 V reg.. Just had it a few days, only noticed tonight. Drove around 6 miles dual carriageway and some slow streets and the needle was still all the way at the bottom. Doesn't seem to move regardless of fast / slow / idle etc etc.. However...

    Hi all, i need some advice if anyone can help... My 05 9-5 2.2tid needs a new thermostat i think as it has started overheating. It has now done 260k on the original so changing it anyway wouldnt be a bad thing. I popped to my local Andrew Page & they showed me a diagram of the only part listed...

    My car 1998 2.0 93 heats up at a normal rate and then after about 30 miles (or in traffic) the temp needle will drop from 9 o'clock and then yoyo about with occasional plateaus at 9 o'clock. Also, it will from time to time take a nose dive to 6 o'clock before gardually working its way back up...

    I think my thermostat is broken, as in its always open. I dont do a lot of mileage say 5 or 6 miles each way, but the temp needle doesnt move from cold the whole time. Granted im not driving it hard, but it should warm up in that time. My question is, does the ecu restrict power or adjust the...

    Good morning. I have had the car into SAAB with a temperature gauge reading faulty, after investigation it was thought to be a faulty thermostat. Now here is my question. Is the thermostat on a 3.0TiD 2003 a chunck of the engine and expensive or is this scare mungering to inflate the price...

  16. Saabscene: Performance
    Has anyone successfully changed the oil thermostat to a cooler one. e.g. opens up at 95 instead of 105. After much searching (as I did not have a clue) the consensus on the net is the ideal temp for oil should be between 85-100 and yet the Saab have the thermostat only opening above this range...

    Hi The temp gauge on my 95 2,3 LPT reads a little low, it only reaches the middle when I have been driving the car for a long time. Otherwise it is a little lower than the middle. Sometimes it is even lower for a while, about halfway between the middle point and the blue area. The petrol...
