Re: Over Heating

Have a geez through the other overheating thread posted by neeek.

Are you running coolant?

What cap are you running?

Does it cool down with movement, ie travelling?

What fuel system are you running?

Is it running lean at idle?

What are underbonnet temps like?

What is all this in?
