V6 ESSEX THERMOSTAT HOUSING

Postby housemartin » Tue Mar 11, 2014 9:29 pm

Guys,
I have seen a thermostat housing with a pressure cap on the top.
Does any one know which vehicles this was fitted to and if it is a later/better alteration to the cooling plumbing?
Cheers
Dan

Best idea is to ring QRG or GW and get a new one. Second hand ones have usually been replaced for a reason, and get the cap from QRG or GW as well Halfords ones are the wrong ones, as I know from personal experience.

I think they were fitted to Zodiac V6

Guys, thanks for the info.
I have found a image of an se6a with one on google.
It uses the same location for the expansion bottle, but it is not pressured like the se5.
Thanks for the tip about the cap.
Cheers
