GTV V6 running temps

hi guys,

ive just bought a 2000 GTV V6 with 46k on it. runs lovely, and has good service history.

now it seems to run just below 90c the majority of the time, when i hit traffic it goes upto 90-92c and the fans keep it there.

Now my question is, should it be running just below 90c when cruising along the motorway?

or should it be cooler?

also, problem number 2.

when closing the doors the window glass doesnt hook under the seal, and there is now lots of wind noise.

i have to actually push the glass under the seal to solve the problem.

any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Hey Mate
the temperature in traffic is completely normal, there has been a previous post on this and we all found the same thing. On the motor way it should be sitting around 50c to 70c not 90 when cruising. If it is have your thermostat checked.

the door problem is a common problem with the window not sealing.
Go to this site it has a detailed guide with pictures on your exact problem and how to rectify it.

Good luck!

Cheers Josh.

Re: GTV V6 running temps


thanks for the info.

with regards to the running temp. if i crusie at say 70mph, it stays cool, perhaps around 75c.

if i give it some beans for a good few mins, then it gets hotter, and also if i hit slower roads or traffic it gets to 90c quite quickly.

but it will get to 92c and comfortably stay there all day.
