I notice this morning my cooling arrow don't even moving from 60 degrees, thats on 1.9 tdi engine. Thats because outside +3.5 degress temperature, but it should move very soon when engine gets hot and thermostart will open??? Engine will get definelly warm due to 20 miles drive in the morning...
Anybody was facing same issue please?:3sadwalk:

My oil gauge gets up to about 90c after approx 15 mins of driving.

I had temperature issues with mine when I got it, for the cost a thermostat and the ease of changing I would do that anyway, and then there are two Coolant temperature sensors, change one or both at the same time and you'll get there.

It takes less than ten minutes for my coolant temperature to reach 90c and it remains there constantly thereafter.
