In the garbage.


its a splash shield to keep water from getting splashed up into the air intake.

Default 1990 Radiator in Arizona

I have been doing some work on my car and replaced the radiator with a spectra. It is made it Canada. It looks exactly like and fits exactly like the original. The original wasn't leaking but had to replace my A/c condenser.
So far I am driving around with the air on and the car is running very cool. Today's temperature is only 99 so far.
I will keep this updated. I have to thank the gentleman on here that recommended it.

Today it ran 160 degrees. I left it sitting with a/c on for about 10 minutes. Same temp. The temp around Sun City was about 99 today.

I hope your oil temp was higher than that.

Default Oil temp?

Ghostrider1
What should the oil temp run?
When the car ran towards the upper limit with the original radiator the oil temp followed after 20 minutes driving.

I did put this piece back. There is a open space of about 3 or 4 inches under the condenser and radiator. It makes the air go thru and not under the two.

Been driving Her daily in the Arizona heat. Staying at about thermostat temp. I let it sit in the drive for 30 minutes at 105 and stayed the same. I am going to take pictures of the temp gauge during the end of July and August..
