:roll: :D howdy i am just wondering the car mechanacally runs well for 269000kms but it sometimes overheats in the summer when its hot weather and it doesnt overheat in the winter unless you are towing a caravan or even a single fully loaded trailer to adelaide or pt pirie however in the cooler weather without towing anything too far it's fine it doesnt overheat at all. do you know whats wrong other than the fact i need a heavy duty radiator if so how much am i looking at to get it completley

With mine it was an isse with the thermo fans not coming on (one happened to be missing) that was causing the overheating.
