Hey Pick one,
Putting our recent discussions aside....
First off, I don't think the OP has a plugged exhaust system. His description was a
bit sketchy. I've seen symptoms similar to this on high mileage Tauri and it was
usually fuel pressure related.
Although it makes no real scientific sense and shouldn't happen, I have seen a
restricted exhaust cause much higher than normal cooling systen temps, in severe cases
to the point of overheating (usually the exhaust manifolds were glowing orange at this
point). I don't know why or how. Once the restriction was removed the temps returned
to normal. There is the possibility of a less than optimal cooling system before the
restriction occured, or other underlying problems. After the restriction was relieved,
operation seemingly returned to within mormal parameters. I was taught the same theory
as you and don't dispute what you are saying BUT, I have seen it happen on more than
one occasion.
Regards, Tom Adkins
