    Default XU9JAZ temperature

    Hi,
    Which thermostat apply to XU9JAZ (DKZ) engine? One site says 82*C, another 88*C. Now i have 82*C, and the engine doesn't go above 80*C on normal drive (in cork it raises to 90*C and little above).

    This is a BX with ZX Volcane engine (before it was DKZ too).

    With good coolant, I'm not sure that it matters which you use to be honest! My thermostat seems to keep the BX19 TZi around 80-85 degrees, if you believe the gauge, up to 90 or a bit more on a hot day with the airconditioning running.

    I think many cars are running well with either the wrong thermostat or an old one that is opening late.

    Now let us see what other people say. They may have other opinions.
