Do you have a centrifugal supercharger? This mod is for the S/C, which actually has an intercooler.

well my car has many cooling issues and I was hoping to keep engine temp cooler.
Well, what has been replaced, cooling system wise? How many miles on the engine? when is the last time it was serviced? What mods, if any, do you have done?

172k and i've already replaced the therm, radiator, ect sensor and water pump. I still seem to have cooling issues though, the only thing that I haven't replaced that might is the heater core(which is broken.)

How clean is the condenser? Also, have you been able to see what the temps really are? Meaning, looking at what the computer is really seeing?

sorry if i seem new to fixing these my specialty is on the escorts/focus's. I can see what the gauge on the dash says but it seems really inaccurate. is there a more accurate way to measure the engine temp? what is meant by condenser?

so the condenser is the radiator looking thing in front of the radiator? just to be safe, because it is not mentioned in either the haynes or chilton.

I am asking these questions because I honestly do not know and have never had to replace or service a condenser. I am not asking these questions as a form of spam.

Is your fan turning on? May sound stupid, but sometimes the resolution is slapping you in the face. I had cooling issues and the motor on my fan was toast. Swapped it out, problem solved. I'll be moved up to Everett end of next month, as mentioned a while ago. I'll give you a hand if/when needed. :)

My car had cooling issues years ago when I first got it. I replaced everything (some things twice):
Thermostat, water pump, hoses, radiator, fan, etc, etc.

The only thing the worked to keep mine cool was the 2003 Cobra radiator upgrade - I paid $100 used from a yard.
After I swapped that in (and adding an external tranny cooler), my engine stopped overheating.

I'd be curious what the tranny temps were. It's crazy how y'all can't keep a stock engine cool with the stock stuff for normal driving. I have my transmission cooler in front of my condenser, in front of the radiator and I don't have any cooling problems.

Rick, did you get to see what the computer was seeing?
