occasionally getting too hot..

running good 3 core radiator just checked by radiator shop and given the all clean/clear while it was out for a paint,tridon tt2023-180 thermostat,5000 km old engine,16 inch thermo running full time. new coolant
temp generally sits nicely on 1/4 to 1/3 on the standard guage, every now and then it gets too hot, today for instance fairly hot here in perth,was running nice and cool, park car, start up 10 mins later and its up to 2/3 by the time i get out of the car park.

Heat soak?? After running for a few mins does it drop back down to normal?

Re: occasionally getting too hot..

Heat soak is the temp tends to go up when the engine stops.
Since it cooled once moving indicates rad is doing it's job ok,prob looks to be not enough airflow from that fan at low speed.

Not the right thermostat. The one you want is a Dayco i cant remember the part number. Go and ask for one for a clevo, most times they give you one for a weezer.

The Dayco part number is DT66A. Do a search for a thread called "Thermostat" in the Cleveland tech section, you will find more info & pictures of the Thermostat there.

Re: occasionally getting too hot..

That one is the high flow one right?

Some thermostats have a larger opening allowing a better water flow.

Get rid of that thermo fan for starters.
