For the past month or so I've had problems with my Sporty overheating... yesterday I had to turn her off as the needle very nearly touched the max (all the way over!)!!!
OK, I've flushed the system (50/50 coolant), replaced the thermostat and today "locked" the viscous fan coupling. Took her for a spin @ 60 - 70mph where the needle sat at aroung half way. But when I slowed into town the needle rose and touched the first marker on the hot side...
One thing that I've noticed is that the reservoir gets filled, and the water/coolant smells of exhaust fumes... has the head gasket gone??? (The engine runs fine otherwise).
PLEASE help, I'm at the end of my tether!!!
