156JTS too Hot
Thanks for the reply. Hot is near 110, before it usually hoovers near 80/90. I will need to check fans. Not certain what u mean by both speeds? I presume there is one setting (Speed) for when the airc is on and one that comes on when the engine gets too hot. I am not certain how long the fans come on for or when they come on, once it gets too hot or to maintain engine temp, will need to check on that one. I fail to understand why the Clutch Valve Solenoid has to do with this problem (as my mechanic seems to be implying/suggesting). Coolant level & radiator good. Actualy I have checked the fan as it only has a single fan it comes on in diferent stages. Stage one is when the Airc is switched on, the fan will come on earlier and more frequently, than as and when the engine gets hot. With the aircond off the fan only cuts in as the temp gets near 90, stay's on until temp gets back to 60. WHEN the Airc is sw on the fan starts kicking in at near 80 but will sw on more frequently therefor keeping the engine cooler for longer. This all when the car is standing still, not labouring!! So in heavy traffic it will get hotter quicker. I need to find out if one can adjust the fan to start earlier. Any one who knows how this can be done let me know please.
