Thermostat and Radiator

Post by namvicsafaris » 06 Apr 2018 12:42

Hello guys

i have 3 2017 patrol wiht 3l turbo engine which i got re-biult into 10 seater safari vehicles. they have been running fine for about a year and now seems to start running hot or maybe its been like this from the start but guides never informed us.

Im looking for a heavy duty radiator to fit these vehicles, any advise will be greatly appreciated and also my mechanic has removed the thermostat and cut out the inside and then welded in a washer to reduce the hole, but now it seems its running to cold, at round 60-70 normal and 80-90 under load.

any advise will be appreciated.

cheers

Hi there
Stick to the normal patrol radiator and rather fit a madman to keep it in one piece
Are the thermostat a double acting one or not?
