Well...this would mean when on the highway, I am truely running only 180-195 instead of 200-215 (head reading).69NovaSS said:ya I've heard the same thing...but it was only about 20 degrees...whatever it is there is suposedly a difference between the two locations
The problem is when I get off the highway. The sender reads 210, 215, 220...i pull in a gas station shut it off and it quickly rises to 230-240 and pukes a little antifreeze out the overflow. (again...this is all on the head reading).
Which would lead me to believe the temps are a true (*intake reading), 185-190 on the highway....and creeps to 200, 205, 210, and when I shut it off it quickly jumps to 220, 230+ and it pukes a little antifreeze.
My sender is not insulated either from the header. humm...Still doesn't change the fact that it gets hot enough to puke antifreeze after shutting it down from a highway blast. I've also heard timing too retarded would make it run hot constantly. Is this true?
I am going over to a friends house tonight to get to the bottom of this. could be timing for all I know.
