are you running an egt gauge. If temp drops quickly when you back out it sounds like this may be tied to your fueling.

I just did a 30 min highway drive at about 70mph with my truck, heat on full, 30 degrees outside. VDO temp gauge was going up to 205-210 if I was heavy in the throttle so I was letting out of it. Around town gauge reads lower 160-180 once it finally warms up. Truck has good compression, fresh fuel system, couple month old coolant, pretty new Bearmach T-stat. Radiator fins look OK, intercooler didnt really have any oil in it, no smoke. Truck runs strong otherwise. 200TDI 1.4 t-case.

I have always been suspect of my viscous fan (if the clutch locks up).

I don't have an EGT gauge yet but maybe a fueling issue? It feels pretty strong though.

A couple minutes after stopping I used a infrared temp gun on sender housing and it said 160ish while temp gauge reading was 180. However inside vs outside I could see 20 difference


Thoughts?

Water pump was off when I did the timing belt a couple months ago. It was apparently replaced maybe 15k ago, it seemed OK though.

Fan. I have never saw it locked up, I can use my finger to stop it, spin it backwards while engine is running etc. It goes spin up slowly at idle and move though.

Ill PM you.

EDIT-

Anyone have the Revotec eletric fan kit? For $235 vs about $100 for new clutch that might be the way to go. Might free up some revs and certainly some engine bay room...

I bought a fan assembly for a Ford Taurus from AutoZone. ~$100 and only required minor modifications - like any other part you buy for a rover. Came with the air dam.

At highway speeds you have an incredible amount of air passing through the radiator. Surprised it overheats then.

Right? It isn't overheating, but not cooling as good as it could be. I am going to start with the fan and maybe just do the water pump as well since it is easy enough and pretty cheap.
