EF Engine Troubles (kinda long)
Ok, now bare with me cus this is going to be hard for me to explain....... I've had this problem with my EF for a while now and was expecting it to be cured recently when the head gasket was replaced and a brand new radiator was installed, unfortuneatly those repairs had little to no effect on the problem (regardless of how bloody expensive it was...). So the problem, whats happening is that while sitting stationery in gear the engine is quite rough, rumbles a bit and get as close to stalling as it can without actually stalling, it always manages to increase the revs and stop itself from stalling. I also find that it doesn't take long for the engine to start running very hot, the temp guage always sits right at the very high end of normal (never out of the normal range though), if I put my hand out of the window just below the mirror i can feel the heat in the air from my engine and its very hot. Regardless of all the above the car always makes it to work in peak hour traffic (takes about an hour) and doesnt have any issues unless i am sitting stationery in gear, neutral isn't much better. If anyone has any ideas as to what could be going on I'd love to hear em, sorry if my explanation of the problem isn't very technical, i'm far from being a mechanic!
