Another faulty thermostat??!!
I recently bought a mini and had some work done it one of which was the thermostat changed as this was faulty which was thanks to mab01uk for assisting me with that!
After this was changed a few weeks ago my temp gauge read normal and would go straight to half way once engine was warm which doesn't take long and heating was working perfect!
Now after a few weeks I noticed today my gauge taking some time to get to half way and also when stopping car and popping into shops for 5 min and switch engine on the temp gauge has dropped to 1/4, strange thing is heating seems ok , drove tonight for 20min and temp gauge didn't get to Half way until I stopped home and let it idle. This is just so similar to last fault apart from heating working ok.
Is this just bad luck? Is something causing the part to fail?
Thanks for any advice!
