have noticed since the weather got warmer that when pushed a bit or when going up steep hills e.t.c my engine temp goes up to about 97 then takes a while to get back down, is this normal or do i need to investigate?
seems to me like maybe I need a new thermostat
put a new one in, everything runs ok just if I give it a lot of welly when going around where I live ( low speed,country lanes) the tempreture goes up a bit
never enough to get the fan on though
fan comes on when temp guage shows 99
is this all normal??? I really need to know!!!!!!!
Hi mate, is yours a white Cally Turbo? If so I apologise for the massive understeer moment coming off a roundabout in Maidstone one evening lmao.
So it didn't have a thermostat in there? Bit strange. I imagine it would have taken a while to warm up properly. Sounds like you pretty much got it sorted now though, my fan comes on a bit earlier but I'm using a 1.7TD rad and I don't know if the fan switch in the rad has a different temp rating than an LET one.
no mine is a silver one, but was in my cav v6 at the time I was going to put my foot down to see if you would give it some but didn't want to get embarased!
just gave it a bit of a seeing too up detling hill and the temp went up to 96 and stayed there for a while but when cruising along at 90mph it dropped to just below 95
might fit a new rad soon and a manual fan override switch just in case
