first off, great site and info...

i've gained a ton of info about my dak over the past few weeks, by reading this sight.

i have a major overheating problem!

background: 97 dak, 3.9l, auto, 87k
last summer, new waterpump, timing chain, etc.


ok, it was really warm yesterday, everything seemed fine until, i hit the highway, hit about 80 and it just kept running hotter an hotter. probably over 220. turned the air off, no difference. slowed down and the temp lowered a bit, but still over 210. it seems to not overheat (over 220 yes too hot but not rising) as long as motor under 2gs/70mph.

it will sit and idle and not heat up, gets to 210 and no higher.

my thought, plugged rad. fan and t-stat seems to be working since alls fine sitting still at idle. no oil in water or vis-a-vers.

well, lookin for advice,

thanks

I'll second the plugged rad notion! I assume that you've already checked the coolant level of course!!! ;-)
