Now I know it has been very hot this weekend but my car has been seeming to have overheating problems again. Was driving it at weekend and it was running fine (for once) but temp was at half which it usually is and then as soon as I hit traffic after 5 mins the fan came in which seems ok but then when I got going again the fan was still coming in for the first couple of miles of open road then stopped coming in but the second I hit traffic again the fan came on immediately and the temp guage was at 3/4 until I got moving again.
When I stopped the car the bottom radiator hose was very hard to squeeze ie a lot of pressure and could only just squash it a bit, is this normal? Every time I drive the car it is up to temp in 5 mins and the hose goes quite solid?
I have also recently fitted a front mounted intercooler in the bumper so son't suppose this will be helping cold air to the radiator? What temp should a LET run at on the dash as I thought a 1/4 was the norm?
