    same as mine goes fine when its on boost
  2. cleaning engine water and oil circuits

    you will need to run it with both methods but it wouldn't hurt using a steam cleaner or a hose pipe to remove as much as possible before refitting the components you should be able to tell water ways from oil ways as the water ways should be tarnished a brown an full of that horrible grey sludge an oil more black in colour

    sol x coolant flush or you can use dish washer tablets in the water system run an drain eventually it all comes out
  4. Range Rover Classic 3.9 Overfueling

    green tune resistors are a job to find I popped to maplin an got a 470 ohm resistor for less than 50p I got the 2 watt one as there easier to handle i had a spare plug kicking around ard soldered it to the existing wires wrapped it in shrink wrap job done

    its an easy conversion to do get some steel pipe of the correct diameter use the original filler neck hose on the tank just needs trimming to suit an get a filler neck hose that's fuel safe for the filler end an join the whole lot together just make sure the pipe is not level an has a slight fall towards the tank I have had no issues you can just make out the black pipe above the rear spring

    as long as the sensor has the correct temperature settings on and off it don't matter where you put it I personally prefer the top but that's my preference

    my sensor is in stat elbow an works perfectly fine it will get up to temperature without the fans coming on early an certainly don't keep going an flattening my battery it cuts in an out as necessary in traffic I guess its each to there own where you put it I have put the sensor in the top for years an will carry on doing it this way as I have never had a issue most of the standard factory cars ive had have also been installed this way until they started controlling the fan via the ecu

    I understand if the rads not upto the job its never going to keep cool ive only ever come across an used top hose fan switches if the x eng switch is designed as a bottom hose switch an comes on at a lower temp all should be good but if you fit a higher temp switch from say a fiesta an put that in the bottom hose its gonna cook I would have thought a switch set to 88 should be in the top from what I read his fan is not coming on till past 100 deg that indicates to me the switch is either faulty or set incorrectly or not designed to be in the bottom hose or the temperature gauge is not reading correctly

    ahh soz I get what you mean theres a pipe blanked off on the inlet manifold i should have read correctly I think mine is piped up from the inlet manifold to the top o/s/f corner of the rad

    fitting the fan temp sensor in the bottom cold hose is madness every vehicle I know of has the sensor in the top of the rad or in the stat housing
