Hey peoples,

Today I was watching the water coolant temp on the climate control diagnostic screen and during the day it was running around 79deg, and tonight at 76deg. To me thats seems a little 'cold', should it not be around the mid-high 80s?

Might need a hotter thermostat...
or Redline Water Wetter is incredibly efficient :lol:

Cheers
South

Is that from looking at the diagnostic screen and physically seeing the temp reading? or are you just saying its 90 deg coz thats your thermostat?

The standard thermostat starts to open at 89-93 deg...
