RE: [DML] Possible cooling problem?



This is normal for the original otterstat (I think I've mentioned this
before on the DML) and is not a cause to worry. The gauge is usually off by
15 degrees, when checked with a pyrometer, so the actual on temperature is
more like 205 degrees. If you switch to lower temp otterstat often times the
fans will stay on in hot climates which can overload the alternator and fan
wiring. I recommend you stay with the original otterstate until it fails as
it is very hard at this time to find new ones in the original temp. range.

P.S. As some of you may have noticed I've posted a lot today for various
reasons but don't worry about me hogging the DML as today was an exception.
Maybe it's because it was a hot day and I felt like spending more time in
the air conditioned office :). Tomorrow things should be back to normal.

Hi
My cooling fans arent coming on until the temperature needle is slightly
below 220. On a friends De Lorean, the stage at which the fans come on is
much lower. Is the thermostat faulty?
The car doesnt overheat, but its very close. The coolant level is normal and
there are no leaks.
 
Thanks
