Re: Car running too hot???
My 2000 model 156 has been running hot in 'warm' or 'hot' weather since last summer (but was fine through winter) with the aircon turned on and set to a a low temp. There is no sign of corrosion or leaks on the rad. By hot I mean up to the 3/4 marker on the guage (110 deg C?) if I was in traffic, and some where between 90 and the 3/4 marker if running in free traffic.
Ironically if I turn the aircon OFF, open the windows, and pump up the cabin fan temperature and speed, it settles back down towards 90ish - I guess because I drawing the heat off the engine and into the cabin.
Not sure what to look for with my useless DIY-phobic eyes!
