Temperature in AAZ

Postby nickelo » 06 Dec 2018, 13:33

Hello i recently mounted an AAZ in my T3. I renneved all coolant circuit, silicon hoses, inox tubes, african radiator, termostats and sensors. Temp gauge marks 3/4 of total when engine is hot (normal run), its this normal? What is normal working temp of this engine in a T3? I Plan to read temp wiht a laser and put regulable resistance to lowering gauge.

Thanks and greetings.

Exactly the same in my TD 1.9 Diesel AAZ. Runs in the centre of dial except in really hot weather, up hills etc.
If I went much above 58mph for a few miles, it would also creep up.
Although if I have the heating on in van cab it can help pull the temp back down a little bit

Just a thought. Common fault on AAZ motor is the water pump impeller is plastic and likes to stop spinning. Pump will spin nice and quiet but impeller isnt circulating coolant. Easy fix though. You will find similar pumps on 1.4 Polo and Golf petrol engines of same vintage.
