Re-Issue Information - Part details amended.
L Series diesel - During cold to moderate ambient temperatures (5°C to 20°C) the customer may experience prolonged in cab heater warm up times.
Loss of performance due to fueling de-rate may also be experienced under high load/duty conditions with the temperature gauge reading normal.
The thermostat may have been manufactured away from specification, allowing a small amount of coolant to bypass the thermostat from the cold side of the system.
Where a customer complaint of the above is confirmed, replace the thermostat.
Refer to PARTS INFORMATION for thermostat application details.
Refer to Workshop Manual repair number 29.45.09 for repair procedure.
