    Checked the coolant temp and it's only showing 68' so guess I need a new thermostat.

    Can anyone tell me the part number and if this is something I can do myself?

    i had them both done at Birds Of Iver mate = £360 inc parts + vat.

    the egr thermostat is easy to do apparently and can be done if your a car diy-er
    main thermostat is more involved and takes a few hours to replace.
    I would change both as that way it's done for the time you will own her. we had a member come on and change 1 , only to find he was still running cool !!
