Jzx100 overheating

Recommended Posts

I changed my thermostat and flushed my fluids yesterday to combat the bobbing of my temp gauge and it seems to have done nothing. Temp gauge will come back down on acceleration, but when cruising or shifting it'll go 3/4ths and above many times does not stay stable. My mishimoto radiator is knicked up, but no leaks anywhere and my water pump has less than 5k miles on it I'm just kind of stumped. Any tips for this head ass?

Air bubbles in the system. Bleed it.

Change out the JZ, for a 7M.

Then your problem will seem normal.

 

Jason, next the newb will be asking what 'bleed it' means......

Stop feeding the animals, and they will go away.

I'll try bleeding it again. I did it for a good 15 minutes last night, but my head assery has no limits. I'll report back later.

My old JZ would overheat sometimes in AZ.

I tried everything, new pump, new rad, flexalite fans, still did it once in a while.

 

 

My new JZ only gets above 180 when it's idling in the garage.

Just to put an end to this topic, yeah it was air bubbles. Spent the money on that ridiculously expensive Lisle spill free funnel and it works 10000000x better than my shitty duct tape thickness funnel. Moral of the story don't try to be cheap :thumbsup::thumbsup:

You should google your planned purchases before blowing your hard earned $$.

But then if you were smart, you would have never bought an X-chassis...

Or just don't own an x-chassis if you can't get a real job....

Oh wow... because none of us here have gone to uni...

 

My statement stands, find a better job, if your smart enough for uni, you can get paid more than minimum.

Sell the X-chassis, buy something that goes with you life style/choices.

 

Something like a mini-van.
