im overheating. like most hahaha
symptomsi can drive around for awhile and it runs perfect
then car slowly starts to heat up
pop the hood open the pressure release cap and bam steam for days
i dont have a heater, i did the whole jack up the car and open the bleed valve on top of the intake mani and fill accordingly as air escapes but after awhile it just lets coolant out with out any bubbles, so i fill up seal and go for a drive mashing on it does fine. then same scenario AGAIN, starts to heat up close to the H but doesnt go all the way, im hoping not a HG it jsut seems to turn right back into a steam factory after 30mins of driving.
whats the deal.
oh its a single core radiator!i know its prone to heat soak but would the cause all of this, i mean its 56 degrees out here at night and it still does it.
hope i made this clear enough.
thanks for any help!
So you are using which radiator? Stock RB or stock KA? Any other cooling mods? The stock radiators can work, but I don't think they are that great if you are hard on the car. What are you using for cooling fans?
Also, I usually bleed coolant several times and check and top it off after every drive the first week, these engines love to trap air.
