XC60 2010 XC60 D5 AWD (156) 151kW
Has anyone replaced a thermostat on a 2010 XC60 D5 151kw.
My thermostat has stuck open and doesn't get above about 50 deg C. It shows this temperature on 2 separate apps from my ob2. It's not a faulty temp sensor as the other night driving home from work I noticed a high fuel usage and the temperature went up to almost 100. Obviously it was doing a DPF regeneration and I confirmed this as it had gone down 0.17 grams of soot in the DPF.
I've waisted a hell of a lot of time trying to find what thermostat fits this vehicle as different suppliers are saying different thermostats fit it. After many hours on the net looking at pictures etc I've finally decided which one it is and where it is.
From what I guess, it lives at the back of the engine under and to the left of the top turbo charger. It connects with a tube coming from the water pump on one end and the radiator hose on the other. It also has a small pipe that connects to a rubber hose and another pipe that connects to the exhaust manifold or maybe the egr cooler or something.
Has anyone got any ideas if this is correct or have fitted one. It looks like it's going to a bastard of a job to replace this. Really have no idea why a motor company would put a serviceable item in such a rediculass location.. Just for fun, try and find it in the picture.
