Hi Greg Its 90 c Once the car reaches this temp all is fine, but it takes ages to get to this temp. Is there anything I can check or do to get it to warm up sooner.

Hi Tony .

Have you checked your thermostat, as this could well be a problem with not closing fully

Or you need to change it for a 92c thermostat .

Replace thermostat and test .

Please get back to me if you need further assistance with this issue But please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

Kind regards Greg

Hi Anthony .

If the thermostat is good and a the thermostat is a 92c then try covering half of the radiator with cardboard ansd see if this does any differance ,do this as an experiment ??

If you find that the temp is warmer faster then use this option , there is radiator covers that you can buy to cover up the front grill and adjust the opening to how you need it .
But the cardboard system workes just as good ..
