Dashboard engine temperature.

Postby kompressorgpl » Fri Sep 06, 2019 12:14 pm

Hello!
I bought a Megane 3 Dci - 2014. On the dashboard the temperature indication is just 1/4 almost all the time. Start & stop does not work either. It's normal? Shouldn't the temperature be in the middle?

What distances are you doing? Diesels generally run cooler than petrol and start stop won't begin to work until the engine is hot enough.

Well: from 5km to 40 km. After a day of web search i thing the "problem" is the thermostat. Buy design it opens at 83ºC and the engine normal temp. is 75 ºC.
