Follow the top hose of the radiator to the engine, inside the domed housing, you will find the thermostat. Get a new gasket and a new thermostat, and do not use any adhesive on it, no silicone. Most thermostats lock open, from never closing all the way, they don't cause you to over heat, they cause you to run cool. Check it out.

How to change temperature sender on AUDI 1.9 TDI


The specific location of the sender is on back of cylinder-head near by vacuum-fuel double pump. There is an assurance clip and a rubber sealing O-ring. Heed of antifreeze solution temperature!!!
Before you try to change the sender you must be sure that the sender is out of order. First you must check the thermostat operating. Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.

Dodge stratus thermostat


I just replaced my thermostat and it is located below the alternator. You have to remove the alternator and the wiring to it and lift the car up. You will then be able to access the thermostat. You could prbably have a local shop fix it for around $175-$200.
