  • Overheating MK Petrol/Gas/Auto Help!

    Just wondering if anyone is experiencing engine overheating on MK Petrol/Gas/Auto. Any Suggestions?
    It is fine around town, but on longer trips gets hot (up long hills ie Melb to Ballarat) in both petrol or gas modes in mild or hot weather.
    It helps a little if aircond is turned off.
    The thermostat has been changed & cant see any bubbles in cooltant system (not blown head gasket).
    Has been serviced timing appears ok.
    I've heard a Toyo Surf had similar problems, & someone fixed the issue by changing to 3 inch exhaust system.
    Has anyone had the problem & came up with a solution?
    Cheers

    The problem to me sounds internally blocked radiator or slipping cooling fan.

    Could also be blocked exhaust from the internals rusting and falling out of the resonator and getting stuck further back. If you're not near town drop the pipe and go for a drive see if it drives remarkably better.

    Going to 3in exhaust is a bit radical and the surf probably had turbo.

      Yes,The timing belt & radiator checked & cleaned several months ago.
      I shall check the cooling fan & exhaust for blockages.
      Thanks for your suggestions so far
