New Radiator and hoses

Having had a new radiator and hoses fitted over the winter it was refreshing to see the water temperature sitting under 80 degrees.

I took the car for a 150 mile run with an outside temperature between 15 and 17 degrees.

This is a good 10 to 12 degrees lower than all but one of the cars I have had since I got my first 190e which was then only a few years old.

Iíd check the thermostat Andy as if itís not reaching 80c something isnít right, theyíre supposed to restrict coolant flow away from the radiator until up to full operating temperature which is specified around 87/88c.

Either that or the temperature readout on the dash (gauge or sensor) could be slightly off?

As Will says, poss look at changing thermostat, and switch to the metal housing if you haven't already

Has metal housing and new thermostat.

When I say under 80 I mean the 80 line is just visible so probably running at 80.

if it continues like that I will get another thermostat just to be sure. Thank chaps.
