Toasty Theory

Post by Logi on Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:26 pm

Rumour has it that Hijets can suffer from overheating......affraid 

Have noticed mine was getting a bit warm in the summer, not Oh Shit! warm, but a bit more than i'm happy with. It's using a very small amount of coolant, haven't tried to locate it yet, I check the coolant daily now and top it up(5-10cc) and it runs a lot cooler.

So, I reckon many overheating Hijets start with a minor leak, prob one of the shitty clips losing their springiness, wee weep, sucks a wee bit air in, without regular checks turns into an airlock, overheats, hg shagged, then sold to someone who comes on here... Shocked

Prevention, rather than expensive cure Logi. Couldnt agree more. A little bit of exploratory work regularly saves a lot of off road time and horrendous bills.Sad Sad Sad
