Problems with coolant temperature on a F4R (2.0 16v) engine. The car will 'overheat' after no time at all, using very low RPMs. The coolant system has been bled numerous times, coolant temperature sensor replaced, thermostat replaced, radiator flushed, hoses checked for blockages, and everything seems to be OK. All that is left is the engine itself - although, the head gasket was replaced 8k ago (and cylinder head skimmed).
After driving, the needle remains in the same position - it does not drop. Once you pull up, it will randomly (not always) drop down to the middle/normal position for a while, eventually going back up to the top.
Coolant Sensor Problem FC3S
I think i have a problem with my coolant sensor. The engine and radiator are both full with new 50/50 ethalyne glycol, the system is burpped and there are no leaks since i completely re-did my entire coolant hose system with RacingBeat hoses, so idk what could be wrong.
Don't worry about all the raddling noises coming from my shifter. I have to get a new knob since my old one doesnt fit the new short-shifter and I need some Loctite to seal the threads a bit better on the extension. Also don't criticise my driving. it's hard to hold a video camera and drive manual at the same time lol.
