Have just got a 1.6 LS 2003 bi-fuel estate which is great.
However the temp gauge does not move from 0.
I did a search and saw an easy fix - basically its a device that sits in the hose and takes over the job of the stuck thermostat.
BUT in finding the fix its only for an 8 valve model and its been developed because of the awkward position of the thermostat.
I know its a strange question but there are loads of stamps on the engine, where is the stamp that tells me the code number?
In the log book it says Engine number - 02PL9095 but that bears no relationship to the code.
It has the symptoms of a stuck thermostat.
If its a 16v model where is the thermostat, is it in the same place as the 8 and why is the fix only for the 8.
sorry for all the questions guys.
