thermostat and temp sensor/update recall .

hmmm this could explain some cars and oil pressure issues when hot on some cars ie engine running to high due to thermostat housing and temp sensor faults, peuegt citroen also have this as well so its widespread through all prince engines from the dates on this up date sheet

the latest update on pas cars is a new piece of wiring plus a thermostat housing with a 4 pin connector on the thermostat body

bi product of this not being right will effect many things with in fuelling 02 sensors and cat also a big impact on engine oil and how thin it gets with to much heat, bare in mind oil is tested to 100c the early cars run to 109c as cars get older this can have a impact also on how the vanos system works for timing, its all interconnected

If I understand correctly what is stated in the document, it seems to imply that if your thermostat housing has a replaceable coolant sensor then you don't need the adapter and new coolant hose. It seems MINI came up with a "patch" to avoid replacing the thermostat housing. It's the coolant sensor that is faulty, but in some intermediate years it was cast-in to the thermostat housing so they would need to replace the whole thing. My 07 had a replaceable coolant sensor on it from the factory.

that was does on one level i have also heard of psa cars that had the sensor done to then get told they need to bring back and have the hole thing changed as they has changed the way the thermostat works internally, trying to get any facts off mini them selves is like pulling teeth, by way same engine is psa cars as mini so would think both would be same, the latest update i believe was a recall on them so worth asking mini about it, some psa owners have had bills of £380 do change it all if not covered on recall
