This is my first post.
I live in Brazil, and have a 1995 GT. Here in Brazil, we don't have much information about Mustangs, so i woul like to ask for your help.
In the last month, i repleaced the radiator because there was a big leak. After that, my Mustang runs without any problens. But now it is overheating. I did a little trouble shooting, and everthing seens to work fine:
- The fan ir working fine;
- The overheat almost reachs the red line, even with the engine at idle power;
- The radiator hose is very hot, what means the termostatic valve is ok (i beleave that), but it seens to be too much pressurized. With the car running, the hose stays too hard;
- The recovery tank level never change. That take me to belive the radiator cap is not working, and the system is presurized all the time.
In the first time that the problens appears, i remove and clean the radiator cap. The car works fine for one week, and the problem returns.
What do you guys think? There is some way to check if the radiator cap is working if 16 psi?
If someone wants to see some pics of my car, there is my Mustang site (sorry, is only in portuguese): www.mustang.bet.br
