[DML] Re: How long have you been stuck in a traffic jam?



Living in Phoenix in the summer, I do drive my car (typically not 
when it much over 105, but I do). I have been caught in traffic jams, 
and did notice that the temperature did rise significantly. I later 
replaced all my hoses, and coolant. I added Rob Grady's fan fix 
module, and have not really had a problem since. Both fans run (at a 
traffic light (you know when you wait 4 or five changes before you 
get to go through), constantly when it is 105+ degrees and sitting in 
the sun), but the car engine temp stays relatively cool.

I have driven it aross the desert in august as well. no problems. 
(Phoenix to LA)

Would I recommend a traffic jam... no... simply because the clutch is 
relatively stiff. The only thing I worry about the car about in the 
summer here, is whether the AC unit will keep the car interior cool 
enough.

TBH, i think that lifting the rear louver would look really funny, 
nor do I think it is a good solution, as you do not have anything 
pushing the air anywhere. I had thought about attaching two fans on 
the underside of the engine bay cover, but never really got around to 
it.
