    I have made up this convoluted hose from silicone and aluminum tube that goes from the upper water neck to the (200tdi) radiator bottom inlet (on the right). It's really long and weird so I was thinking that if I could somehow turn the upper water neck so that it goes to the right rather than...

    Well, I finally found my slow coolant leak by pressurizing my 200tdi's coolant system to 15psi. The leak is located on the gasket between ERR1499 and the head. My guess is that I'll have to replace the paper gasket located there. The unfortunate thing is that it looks like there are three...

    Is there an appreciable difference to running the cooler thermostat in a 1994 d90 with the 3.9? I read on another thread about the gas mileage suffering, but that seemed to be talking about the 160 stat and that was in an 3.5. If so what are we talk about in MPG difference?

    So I have been chasing what I suspect to be a minor cooling system problem with my truck. I probably just need to give the engine/rad a good flush, temp creeps up a bit on highway under heavy load. Usually runs at 189ish under load gets up to 195 maybe 200 if I am really beating the piss out of...

    I looked through the threads and my references but cannot find the recommended thermostat temperature for my 1988 D110 with the 3.5 carburetted engine. Is it 180 degrees or 195 degrees? something else. Also it looks like the thermostat housing is at the front of the intake manifold where the...
