How hot?

Post by Eviejeep » Thu Aug 10, 2017 12:32 pm

How hot do your Mindys get on a normal run? I'm finding that the coolant temperature doesn't exceed 60 degrees. Before I start checking the gauge is correct or swap the belt driven fan for an electric one, I'd be interested to know if this is normal?

Should be around 80c
If the heater gets hot looks like the temp switch

Standard Thermostat is 80' you mention Belt driven Fan ? it should be a Viscous free running fan, check the fan bearing hasn't seized. failing that Maybe the Temp sender for gauge is faulty.
