Hi guys.
My CX3 is not heating up properly
OBD says about 50° Celsius ( about 122°F )

The dealership here in Iceland says I can not replace just the thermostat and that I need to replace the whole housing.
In fact they tell me there is no thermostat. Just a computer controlled valve S**t system and they want $1800 for the part.

Can that really be?

Best regards.

Ok thanks alot.
I'm gonna call the stealership again.
I have talked to them 2x and they keep saying I need to buy the whole part for $1800.
It is hard to belive.

I dont know what is temperature now in Iceland Ilive in Croatia and here is hot, but I think that something is wrong with thermostat. Thermostat is blocked and cooling path is long and its wery hard to
reach right work temperature.That is only my opinion.

You are in bad position because Iceland has few autopart store.Look at net.
Now it is about +15°celcius.
The other day when it was about +5 and I blasted full heat in the morning I noticed it was not getting very warm in the car.
I connected a obd reader to the car and then engine just got about 40°celcius. This is not normal. I only drive highway speed with this car.
When it was -20 last winter the engine was always at about 80+°celcius

Iceland has probably 30-40 autopart stores , the problem is that they can not find a thermo and then the dealership says it is this whole $1800 part
