The water temperature is higher than normal car. The cause was looked for and trouble-shoot whatever but without improvements. One fine day the followings were noticed: -
Before turning the key to the ON position - notice no battery light symbol ??? - notice the water temperature needle ???
and after the key is in and turn to the ON position, just before starting the car - notice battery light symbol shown now ??? - notice the needle ???
What the hell??????? before the engine starts - in the warm morning, the water temperature already move up a huge degree?
No wonder the water temperature shows 55% hot. Close to 60% even. If the error is cancelled out, then it would be 40% or so.
So now, the water temperature is not bothered with being high and all. Simply call it, it's calibration is out.
Add Red Line Water Wetter
Yes, it is effective, a noticeable drop in water temperature, extremely slow to rise up to previous level. Extremely fast to go down to cool area :)
12th June 2003 Wednesday Evening
Got a air-cond insulator from a mech. Couldn't get it into the water pipes without taking the pipes out. So I cut the insulator like a swirling circular motion and wrap the water pipes above the hot hot extractor. I wonder if they will catch fire?
Hmmmmm, may be I'll take another clearer picture during the day. Oh, BTW, seems like it didn't help :(
Well, 18th June 2003 now, didn't catch fire, heat has made it a little loose :(
The black foam shield was later removed around middle of Sept 2003, where a sifu William said could catch fire and extremely difficult to put down. When it was being removed the bottom part nearer to the extractor was crispy - tasty hehehehe.
Well after removing it the engine didn't feel any hotter, so no big deal.
The Red Line's Water Wetter dissapeared :( meh meh heh he heheh eh h I want my money back :( :( :( meh he he heh he he
