Hey guys my car over heats (230) when I'm in traffic. I have heard if my timing had too much advance that could be a cause. I was about 7-8 over so I brought it down to around 1-2 over. My question is what does this do to performance and do I need to tweak anything else when I do this? The car seems to be running fine but the idle dropped a bit...at least it seem that way to me. I will see tomorrow if that helps with the overheating. I have changed the thermostat (180) so I should be good. Next would be to change the hoses as I'm not sure when they were replaced last, but they look good. Next would be maybe an electric fan or a aluminum radiator.
