Re: New Cobra II owner :)
Well, my mechanic friends and I looked at it, and we think we know the issue. Somewhere in the water veins in the block, there's a clog. How we came to this conclusion, is that the upper radiator hose gets waaay too hot, in course with the over heating, while the lower radiator hose is almost cool to the touch. The radiator itself also gets extremely hot. So I've taken off the upper and lower hoses, and I've tried forcing water through the L that goes from the water pump in to the block (forgot the technical term), but when I do that, water just backs up immediately, making me think the clog is somewhat close. That, or I don't have enough water pressure to get it through.
Any thoughts on that? I'm replacing all the radiator hoses, thermostat, overflow cap, and radiator cap, but should I also do the water pump just incase? Guy I got it from said it was just done, but I tend to not trust others work.
