A very odd overheating issue on 87 RX turbo
Posted 29 March 2004 - 09:08 PM
Now the background. This car has had the intake manifold gaskets replaced (they were leaking coolant) and a junkyard 2 row radiator installed. It also has new hoses and a brand new NAPA 180 degree thermostat......basically the thermostat and 2 row radiator were installed and then my problems began.
My first guess is that the thermostat is sticking first thing in the morning for some strange reason. But I have my doubts because the thermostat is brand new.....and its from NAPA which usually has quality parts.

Could I have done something really stupid like putting the thermostat in upside down?

I dont think its the radiator cap.......they generally dont become intermittently bad.
