1969 VW Beetle OVERHEATING!

25

Asked by Sep 24, 2007 at 08:13 PM about the 1969 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 1969 VW Beetle. My engine overheats very bad. I need to know if the bolt on BUGPACK electrical cooling fan/oil cooler is any good for my situation to bring down the temp. What are other economical solutions to fix my overheating problem? Also I have a problem shifting from second to third gear. Is there an adjustment I need to do or is it an internal transaxle problem? And yes I am a truck driver so I am shifting the gears properly! Thanks,  Sam
