EB A/C problem

Has anyone had problems with there a/c on in 35degree heat days, like condenser heating up alot pushing the heat onto the radiator causing the radiator to heat up to where the temp guage reads nearly hot, turn of a/c temp goes down to under halfway, mind you I am running 2 12inch theremo fans, radiator been flushed new coolant, the only thing i can come up with is the design of the a/c system in the e series cars the condensor being to close to the radiator, and in peak stop start trafic, the heat from the condensor cant escape, and gets drawn onto the radiator, i have checked other brands of cars and most of the condensors in those vehcles, is alot further away from the radiator than the e series, any information would be good.

Re: EB A/C problem

I've got an ED which is about the same and have never had a problem. Are you running a shroud with the fans? Are you positive they are coming on at the correct temp?

Could also be insufficient coolant flow through radiator due to faulty thermostat, waterpump, collapsed hoses or blocked radiator tubes. Radiator needs to be removed from car, end tanks removed and tubes cleaned professionally for it to be done properly.

Some E-series also had problems with casting sand being left in the block from the factory, and eventually making its way to the radiator, blocking it.
