what to do guys ?
the radiator cap is fine too and there is no coolant leak whatsoever.
should i opt for a bigger radiator
or should i fit the ac condenser under the body below the driver side . i heard someone doing that which helped the car operating in a cooler temp.
can the ignition coil
be faulty which could lead to this overheating ?
Ignition coil has nothing to do with the overheating.
do you have a clutch fan on the engine ? does that work or its just running free.
you can change the position of the Aircon condensor but whats the point.
How about putting a bigger fan on the front or may be 2 high speed ones and then see.
change your temp gauge as well ( the one that tells you car is being over heated )
if that doesn't help
get a bigger radiator no probs at all
My car has in the front
- FRONT mount intercooler (for turbo)
- Aircon condensor
I got only one fan on it and it doesn;t heat over half no matter how long you drive for.
Car came from sydney to melbourne 800 kms .. no overheating
