Default How hot is your 207?

Hi all,

First post for my "new" car. I have a 60 plate 207 SW 1.6HDi (92).
I notice that when starting from cold the temerature gauge seems to take an age to register any movement and then can take up to 20 mins to get to "normal" temp. That seems a long time to me. I queried this with the garage and was told that he checked it on the "computer" (I assume he means PP) and it shows no faults!! I know that there is a school of thought that deisels take longer to heat up (ironic eh!) but I have had deisels for years now and this is by far the worst. At a steady 50mph on the dual carrageway it takes about 10-15 mins to heat up fully and shows no movement on the gauge for the first 5 mins. My Golf would be at full temp in the first 5 mins! Also the temperature (on the gauge) seems to fluctuate a bit between 70 and 85 while all my previous cars sit rock steady at around 90.
Anyone got any comments on 1. warm up time or 2. "Normal" gauge temp when fully warm?

P.S. Anyone near Prestwick with PP and a Lexia3 that could switch on my cruise control?

I have a 61 plate 207 1.6 HDI and it takes ages to warm up. It reaches normal operating temperature after about 15 to 20 minutes around town or about 10 to 15 minutes on the dual carriageway. I think your car is fine judging by my own experience. A friend has a petrol 207 and that warms up very much quicker.......within 5 minutes on a cold start.

When you have a little free time open the bonnet and start the engine from sitting overnight!). The radiator shouldn't start to get hot until the temperature gauge is approaching its normal reading. If it gets warm straight away the thermostat is opening too early, or is stuck open.
If you don't want to go to that trouble, if the heater starts blowing hot after a few minutes you probably don't have much to worry about.
