I have a red line and live in Tucson AZ my temps use to hang around 198 to 205 in the summer months . I thought that that was running to hot . I did something that I dont think anyone else has tried. I ran hoses to both sides of the engine block comming from the brake cooling ducks. After after installing the flexible hoses and home made brackets to hold them in place the temperature now runs between 192 and 200 I dont know why someone else hasn't tried this since the brakes dont need to be cooled if your just driving on the street
Interesting. Never heard or seen that before here duct work to cool the engine block. Hey if it works, why not? Tucson AZ hot as hell, it was when I was there at least. Photos if you can?
Hotter summer temps we all want our cars to run a bit cooler. Sometimes this is not possible. Keep track of your temps on a regular basis during these hot summer months. Any change from your normal range 190-210, find out why? Low coolant in the expansion tank? Any sign of leaks under your car?
I just cleaned my IC and Radiator with a hose/brush/sponge. Dirty they were, but not now. Lot cleaner, maybe it will help some then again, maybe not?
Lot of loose grime washed away in this most recent process. Years worth maybe.
I did this wash/clean right after I bought my Sky. 6 years later it was back on my list. Box checked off for now.
I had commented on another thread here, a new owner with seats different than the original set up with no power seat height adjustment switch.
After his inspection under the driver seat, no evidence that the car had this option installed.
Then looking under the passenger seat he finds an old I-Pad with Honolulu time on the clock.
You just never know until you look, close. Loose bolts here, a tear in the weather strip there, uneven tire wear, a
chip monk on your intake manifold, could be anything. Ahhh it's ok, I'll check it later. Famous last words.
