My Laguna wont warm up properly as i another cars temp. would reach to normal level mine stays still cold both the temp gauge and hot air from the vents. I am 90% sure the temp gauge is not faulty because in a hot day and in a heavy traffic the temp gauge went only up to quarter mark. The other thing i can think of is can it be the thermostat stuck open or taken off by previous owner and; I dont think so because the top hose from radiator to thermostat is warm and the bottom hose is cold!!
I dont understand what is going on?? the fans are not cutting either so does anyone knows why?? please help, any suggestions and ideas highly appreciated
thanx alot
oh the car is 97 P Laguna 1.8 RT 8valves

hi m8:) it does sound as if the thermostat is stuck open not uncommon, but as you said the previous owner may have had the thermostat cut in half just leaving a seal and the ring of the stat. if this is the case you may find that the car has had an overheating problem in the past and this has been a tempory fix.

so good luck m8 and let us know the outcome alex:)
