    My Cappers got the later 2.8efi engine out of the Granada mk3's, post Cologne I believe.

    Im pretty sure the engine thermostat is on its way out... I cant see much info for the engine though, and nothing online shops as to getting a new stat.

    do they use the same stat as the cologne (or other) engine? If not, where am I best picking one up from?

    Cheers. :)

    The engine is a Cologne and as far as I know it's the same thermostat as for the Capri 2.8i. At least that's what our parts databases say :)

    Capri 2.8i was specified with an 82 degree 'stat as Ford knew the engine would get driven harder in the Capri than the Granada. The engine always runs slightly cooler than in a Granada as a result.

    CCI have the correct ones and of course I'm sure the excellent traders on here can sort you one out..............

    Found a local place that do them! I'll make sure its an 82 degree stat though. I just hope it stops the water from getting too hot now.

    Thanks for the help guys!
