Thermostat coolant leak.

Recommended Posts

I’ve got the usual seepage from the thermostat housing so a few questions.

 

Is it a complete unit as in housing, thermostat etc? - part cost is about £225 from TPS.

 

What should I expect, cost wise, for the part and fitting etc?

 

Any info much appreciated!

if i remember correctly the correct full parts is something like £4/560 then you have about 3-4 hours labour so nearing on £1K

I had a small leak which was picked up on a health check. 

Main dealer diagnosed the thermostat so as i had an extended

warranty i put in a claim and they authorised the replacement.

A week after replacement i was losing coolant worse than ever.

They took car back in and said now its the water pump.

Don't know if it was misdiagnosed or the strip down caused  

the water pump to fail as well.

Glad i wasn't paying.
