A thermostat post. which you all seem to love
Hello i hawe 520d replace both thermostats but to up till 86 87
See the other replies pal, third thermostat possibly
Why the hell do these eat thermostats
To confuse owners and generally piss them off
Piss poor design...Ive never had to replace a stat until this car and I've had all sorts of cars too 500hp
They are a pain in the arse!! Only getting 67. Going in on Friday to get both stats changed. I didn't even know they had a 3rd one
99% of the time the main two sort it. Only in extreme cases is it the gearbox cooler which only the Auto's will have.
Mines is a 2008 lci auto. I hope to fook the two do cure it. 1st problem I've had in 2 years of owning it though.
Looks quality though!
Aye it's a nice one. But when things like this go wrong u question going back to petrol. And I do miss the sound of a petrol. Thinking about a 335i coupe next i think.
I like the 135i for some reason too
Very quick. Although the e60 is a touch of class. Easily the comfiest car I've had, just seems a lot can go wrong. I thought getting an lci with low miles would lower my chances of the usual niggly problems. And it happened on the way to the mot station yesterday morning
Yeah I had the e46 before this and it's poor compared to this, so many small problems to fix but the car itself is an animal!
Never had an e46 but did have a lot of e36's... loved them, still my fav model.
Will the thermostats effect mpg? My pre lci 530 is w**k on mpg. Low 20's at best
Definitely, if the car thinks the engine is cold then it'll chuck more fuel in. You should be seeing 30's at least surely
That's what I thought. I think I'm averaging 22/23. Even on a run 200+ miles it barley achieved 30
My pre LCI 530D does low 30's average on a 3 mile school run when the car never gets a chance to even slightly warm up. Long runs is late 30's to early 40's. It did 48mpg door to door from mine to Disney land Paris with 4 people and boot crammed full.
My temp sits about 67 and I'm getting 25mpg non motorway in a 525d lci msport. So yip they doe effect it. These thermostats are a major problem for the majority of e60 owners it's a disgrace. Plus the dpf and manifolds are shite. I'm actually getting put of the car.
I'll be having my dpf out next week, that's another problem out the road
Yeah it's normally a sign...and because of that your dpf will start to get blocked too and it will be a domino effect if ur plugs aren't working either
My dpf has been gutted before I had the car. So no blockages there. What plugs you on about? It's a 530D. Is there something else I should be checking too?
According to INPA my plugs and relay are shit too
Buy genuine oem ones
