If it runs hot while driving then it's usually a flow problem. More than likely a blocked radiator. You'll be amazed at the amount of crap that builds up in these radiators!

Re: xr8 running hot

yeah new radiator fixed the problem right up , the old one was too far gone inside to redo and was almost cheaper for a new one than to have them put new core in it , thanks guys
