ED falcon overheating????

Hi guys, i own an ED falcon, and have found that with a couple of people inside the car my tempreture is skyrocketing to almost the red. Is this a common problem in the ED??? Can it be fixed, and if so, how do i fix it???


Losing my license wasn't the smartest thing i have ever done, but now i can save my ass off and buy a V8!!

Re: ED falcon overheating????

I can tell you that it ain't a common problem with the ED. I transport a few people around and it stays where it always does! That's my girl!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

Maybe would be a good time to invest in doing a thermo fan conversion.

But you never know, it could be you're just receiving the wrong temp signal. Maybe a new thermostat could be in line also.

You've possibly done a head-gasket.....start your car and remove the water cap if it starts bubbling out brown water theres your problem
