Re: [DML] Possible cooling problem?



Thanks for everyones reply. I'll take a look at the switch.
 
I knew it wasnt overheating, but compared to the other De Lorean on that day, it was much higher. Also, it was an unusually hot day for Ireland, and sitting in heavy traffic didnt help so perhaps it was a one off, because it never went that high before. (makes me wonder how the car survived at all in Laredo, Texas!)
 
I'm tempted by Toby's adjustable switch!
 
Thanks again

220 is not overheating, although it seems a little high. If your 
system can hold 15 lbs pressure for any length of time, your 
boiling point is closer to 250 degrees. 

The thermostat does not control the fans - the otterstat does. That's
the switch in the coolant pipe on the left-hand side of the engine bay.
