Do I have an overheating or a radiator problem?

Because of the Series IIA front grill I had to keep a Heavy Duty Series Rad to cool the Range Rover 3.9 V8i. Although the water carrying capacities are the same the old Series Rad seems to boil over even on short journeys and dumps up to a cup full of water each time the engine is turned off, from what I remember it did the same with the old 4 cyl it came from.

Another LR owner says it's common with the old Series Rads but I don't want to ignore it. Furthermore if it constantly dumps water it's going to cost me a fortune on coolant.

The engine temprature guage needs replacing as it never gives a reading.

Well first off you need to get a working temp gauge :rolleyes: otherwise you won't know if it's overheating or not.

Well that kinda goes without saying, but I was not intending in keeping it off the road while I await the arrival of a new temp guage as I need the truck for work.

My series 1 with a 3.5 v8 running standard series rad (not high capacity) never needed more than a 10" fan off a fiesta, and never dumped water when turned off.

Although the engine was looked after, with plenty of oil and water changes, very often after a weekends off roading.
