My ea is getting hot when I have the aircon on and I'm stopped at traffic lights.
It usually sits near the 1/3 mark (just below 'L') in normal weather (25C and under),
but when it get's hotter it moves up above halfway (just above 'R') and sometimes higher depending on how hot it is.
When Im on the open road it's at 1/3.
When I turn the a/c off in traffic it goes down to just above the 'L'.
The head was done 1500k ago.
I have had the radiator pulled out and cleaned (60% blocked), thermo tested out ok, new hoses and cap.
There is a small leak at the heater tap, but wouldn't lose any more that 200ml a day, which I will fix next week.
Took it to a mechanic, they did test for gases in water, all ok, viscous fan they said was fair, a bit tight meaning it ran more often, they didn't seem to think it was the water pump, but I do.
So before I do the pump, any other Ideas?
Or am I worried about nothing?
If I didn't own an EA, I'd have an alcohol problem with all that money and spare time!
