200 is in!!!!

Recommended Posts


after working on the car at weekends its done, nippy as hell :)

One problem though - temperature.

It's up in the red :o

I've read about the mismatch between 200tdi sender & the TD guage but surely it shouldn't be this high. Top hose was very hot to touch after a couple of mile journey.

Getting worried to be honest.

Any recommendations?????

Appreciate any reponse.

Use the defender sender PRC8593 to match the existing gauge, Discovery senders won't work with Defender temp gauges & give high readings.

mine was A TD it's been a Def 200Tdi for 12 years using the sender unit detailed above & existing [original] temp gauge. if the Defender sender won't screw in, you'll have to retap the thread or change the lower thermostat housing to the Defender one err1499,

a huge difference isn't there, like a reborn vehicle :D

It's amazing, engine went in sweet as anything.

Only stumbling blocks were - air filter - now sorted. PAS reservoir - still waiting a defender pipe. Now the temperature.

Would go as far to say its better than my 300tdi Disco ever was.

Well happy.

the temp will sit fractionally below the red if you don't swap the sender. check you haven't got an airlock as well - I jacked the front end of mine up on a hi-lift as high as I could get it with the rad filler open to try and purge any air out.
