bit of a complicated issue here, Basically my engine doesn't reach temperature unless im sat in traffic, when im driving it never gets to the halfway point, it sits inbetween the middle and next notch down.
Can anyone show me in a picture where the thermostat is for my car (1999 1.6 16v SXi) and how much it costs for a new one, and if i can do it myself. Iv been told it could be this and needs replacing.
The car is also currently low on Coolant, its a couple or so inches bellow the line, but its been stood since 8:50am and is stone cold! This was topped up about a month ago after realising that the coolant tank was empty! (i filled it with about 1.5 litters)
No white smoke from exhaust, no mayo on cap apart from a little when it was uber freezing (was condensation, went after 2 mins)
