I dont care much about it because I belive that runing cold is better than the extreme varation from arround 80 degC to some 105 degC, heard about leaking head gaskets.

My car is now at 210000 km and seems pretty stable in operation except electrical faults like PDC and brooken vires in the rear trunk lid hinges....

But the other week I checked the coolant temp and my bogey was back...😁🤣

Since a week back coolant is at 100-105 in city crusing... as weĺl as on highway > 95 km/h... the only thing I repeatedly have practiesed is putting ignition on in pos 2 ...not cranking eng... just letting the system inlcuding Valvetronic doing the self calibration procedure for like 15 sec... which you will hear and voila its hot again.... but do I belive in this ..noooo ... perhaps if it continuos to work and if anyone else can test it and validate any effect.😎
I will keep you updated ...

Cheers mates

Hi

Engine is still to 98 % runing on 99 - 105 DegC... in speeds below 95 km/h.

Im putting in key and ignition on...wait 10 sek then press start.

Still putting in a bottle of STP injector cleaner every refueling.

Thats it... have anyone else tried this...

Well it seems like an improvement over running drastically cold. So long as it's not overheating.

Hi

Can inform you that without any obvious reason its running on 80 DegC again.

Spring is here with 15 to 25 degC ambient temp...

🤤
