*sigh* This cruzah has no plans of ever just running at a normal temperature. I belive I must either accept that or move on. In the last 8 months: New Thermostat, hoses, radiator, heaterlines Flushed the cooling system many times Added engine and tranny oil coolers Now, after having made it through the hotest part of the Tucson summer with no cooling issues at all (staying at the lower line), the temp has again begun to creep up, AGAIN. It is heating up while idleing and durring heavy stop and go traffic. So the most likely accute culprit is the fan clutch. But, as much as I like my 62, I am begining to feel more and more that the real chroinc culprit to these nagging failures of systems that I have repaired over and over is the tired old Land cruiser in my driveway. She has a quater million miles on her and has the wear and tear to prove it. She spent many years as a boat tender up in New England has some frame rust, nothing too bad. I have repaired quite a few electrical gremlins lots of new sheet metal and have to admit I am growing weary of this never ending list of pending repairs. I really want an expedition worthy vehicle that I can drive a few hundred miles on a freeway and then a few 10's more into the woods with consistant reliability. And about 80% of the time I have one, but it is never a comfortable trip. I am always concerned that something is going to go wrong and I'll be forced to make alternate plans to get home. I guess in the end these random repairs are cheaper than the monthly payments would be on a newer cruzah and I can beat on this one off road with less guilt, but still I would like for the damn thing to just stay friggen cool!!! I want to sign off on the damn cooling system and be done with it!! ARG.
