Default Indigo thermostat problems

Hi all!

Recently I've bought aftermarket Indigo petrol 2007.
After some time I've noticed that engine works with lower than normal temperature (at high speed it drops down to ~25% on gauge), so I think that thermostat is always in open state.
Since I'm Russain and live in Russian Federation there are no services or support for Tata owners.
If anybody knows where this thermostat is located please tell me (or even with photo maybe) - I will change it myself, I even bought a new one. I just don't want to take apart the whole engine to find it.

P.S. And maybe anybody knows what wheel et or offset suits Tata indigo?

Thanks in advance.

Mine is a diesel and on highways it does drop to that level.

Thanks for reply, but I've meant another thermostat - not the AC thermostat, but one in the cooling system which allows coolant to flow through engine and not through radiator while engine maintain normal working temperature ~90C, and after it it opens, coolant flows through radiator to avoid overheating.
In winter season we have a very low tempearature outdors - my engine will run really cool, unless I'll fix it.

I am extremely sorry for pointing you to an unrelated message.

Kindly have a look at the following two messages and see if any of these help you. Personally I have no technical knowledge.
