x type 2.2ds, 2006 .cooling problem
just done 6 mile journey, temp gauge into red all the way.
rad and reservoir( full ) stone cold.
it seams the thermostat is not opening. could this be the case? any advice on solution much appreciated
Sounds like the problem. Don't forget the thermostat in the oil cooler as well, I would change both to be on the safe side.

just to update for reference,
got my local mobile mechanic to replace stat. while doing it one of the holes, for self tappers, on the stat housing stripped the thread.
he drilled through the housing and fitted a small nut n bolt which did the trick.
all together £65 inc' parts, more than reasonable!
everything now perfect.
Glad to hear you're back up and running, thanks for the update.
