Hello, I have a 94 ST with the stock 3.9 engine, its a summer car for me and only gets driven about 3-4 months out of the year , and hasn't been driven too much in the last couple years.(dont judge, I know I am not the best Land Rover owner)
A few years ago my oil cooler lines were cracked and the local Land Rover dealer mechanic (Land Rover East in Denver) suggested I just take them off, I am in Colorado and he suggested they werent overly needed in our climate. The last time I drove it last summer the temp got a little hot, I checked the coolant, it was low in the reservoir, I filled half way and parked it. Yesterday when I pulled it out I let it idle for about 20 mins, drover around the block a couple times no heat problem. But when I drove the kids to get ice cream last night, sitting in the drive through line the temp got above normal, on the drive home it when back to normal.
So here is the question, should I put the oil cooler lines back on or start looking for other problems?? (water pump, thermostat, ect)
Thanks for looking and your feedback,
