headache with the coolant system...
ok here i am again :)
ok, i changed the valley hose, thermostat + gasket, water pump + gasket, intake manifold gasket, plenum gasket, egr + iac gaskets and 2 cracked vacuum hoses...
valley hose is from behind the water pump to intake manifold all is good.
thermostat is for 170 not 195 factory (i think that might be the reason?)
water pump was a bit beaten up, now it's new.
all the gaskets and vacuum hoses are all good as far as i can see
my problem? car started after a few seconds of hesitation, i let the car warm up for 10 minutes then drove no more than 20 MPH around 3 blocks. temp was HIGH!!! and water was bubbling and gushing out of reservoir... any thoughts???
one more note :) transmission fluids were a bit low so car was taking a while catching up to the gear..
can the tranny fluids or a 170 thermostat be the fault?
thanks :) and happy new years
