Talking 200tdi operating temp

I am adding a electronic fan controller and need to know where to set for it to turn on and turn off.

I was thinking 80C turn on 77C turn off. Thats about 170 F to 176 F. Just a guess really.

What is the stock thermostat for these engines?.

Thanks !


Matthew

You want the engine to run at operating temperature and just have the fan come on as it heats up a bit, not fighting the engine wanting to run where it should be. You will be surprised how fast an electric fan drops the temp in a diesel.

I tapped out the thermostat housing and after trying a few LR switches I wound up using one from a VW.

The X-Fan switch is easy to use and strong enough to run one fan without relays etc. That and Si is a great guy and "one of us" so please consider supporting him before Summit who only really cares about Muscle cars.

Electric fan to replace my fan is a mod I fully intend to do possibly next spring. What's the best one to deal with hottest conditions? Also want one that is not hard to source if it fails while out and about.

thats really nice peice but a lil out of my price range.

I had a flexalite cyclone 16in fan on my 1989 325i with S52 engine. It was awesome and quiet due to the curved blades. Mine was a pusher.

on the 200tdi ill be goin with asmaller fan with straight blades, they are cheaper and I wont hear it anyway. It will be setup as a puller, it is much more efficent.

Also if your doin off-roading do not use the included fan mounts that are liek zip ties through the rad core, they car wear holes in the core during rough service. Get some cheapie brackets and use the thrucores as a emergency backup.

Spal, and flexalite are two good brands
