Re: alfa romeo gtv overheating
Have a good look at your radiator, as I wouldn't mind betting it is stuffed.
The fins fall out, especially at the bottom, and this substantially reduces the cooling.
Also if the car ran at a constant 60ºC with the fans on permanently your thermostat is stuck open.
Even with constant cooling it should sit a lot higher. Normally between 80ºC and 90ºC depending on the individual car.
