    Hi all,

    Thank you for the advice!

    I changed the oil cooler thermostat (Genuine part, number: JD61162 [300862]). Pretty easy fix.

    Taken for a test run and the needle gets to half way which is great.

    Is it a problem for the temperature to then be dropping again? I must confess, as there has been water in there I am worried about corrosion, could this have an effect?

    I don't think so.

    The temperature gauge gets out of the blue around 60 degrees centigrade and hits the red over 100.

    So the gauge reads between 70 and 100, 30 degrees.

    It's nice to see the gauge half way. It shouldn't move too much but operating temperature is between blue and red depending on the work?

    Thanks all. I have just bought a new water pump, belt and coolant to go in.

    Hopefully that will solve all the issues.

    Again, thanks for getting back to me so quickly and I will keep you all posted. It does seem that the Oil Thermostat is the problematic one!
