2000 996 coupe: thermostat


Recommended Posts

When I start driving my 996, the temperature of the water takes much longer than other cars (like my Civic) to get 180F.

Is this normal for all the water cooled 911s or something is wrong with my thermostat? If that is the case, is there any way to confirm that the thermostat is not working properly?

Thanks

It takes my car about 10 minutes of driving to get up to 180 during the summer. In the winter, it can take more than 15 minutes. I have the low temperature thermostat, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Sounds normal. How long are you talking here?

To test the thermostat, I like to remove it and boil it in a pot of water.

Of course, that means you'll need to refill the cooling system, which is an entirely different story... :)

With an outside temperature of 60 degrees F and in light rain, today it took 6 miles and 7 minutes of freeway driving to get to a coolant temperature of 180 degrres F.

Thanks

Thanks for your comment. Could you please advise what is a low temperature thermostat?
