G,day all.Just a quick one to reply to overheating 4.2 t.d patrols.I drive a 6 wheeler with 2 tonnes on the tray and tow about 3 tonnes sometimes from Margaret river to Esperance(9 hours)Temp gauge doesnt budge and I can drive it bloody hard.It,s an awesome vehicle(company car).And I,m not bias because we,ve got a troopy also and its bloody brilliant too.Hope I,m not waffling.

no your not waffling just making all the patrol owners jealous, why does mine overheat that sort of thing. By the way considering the vehicle has been modified has the motor or the radiator been modified to accomadate the 6 wheelers ability. If so could be useful to all the patrol owners out there.

Lazy unfortunately.A bit of sand and the back sinks pretty easily.The tray is rated to about 2 tonne though.

My TD42 GQ gets hot mainly during low range climbs. Which is understandable because the engine is working hard but not getting airflow.

My question is, does the engine actually get that hot, or is the thermostat/temp guage just overly sensitive?

Don't know about the GQ, but the GU motor does get hot. 3/4 on the Nissan gauge is about 112c - 114c on VDO gauge. Too hot to run constantly at these temps if you like your engine, so I've been told by radiator people.

JT,
That just wets my appetite, what has been done to it too keep it cool?

Regards Trevor.
