what can i do mechanically to my my cooling system to make it run cooler and more efficiant?
Hello, The design of the 1986 Corvette engines (and many C4 engines) caused them to run hot. Here is a forum in which the issue is discussed. You can find some good suggestions in here: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/showthread.php?t=1599621 Best of luck! CarGrrl
try using a lower temp thermostat and and after market bigger radiator,or one could spend the money on a electric water pump for higher water output.this is for any muscle car
Ecklers corvette stocks cooling fan override switches in 4 temperature ranges. This will activate the big cooling fan in back of the radiator alot sooner than the cars ecm. (239 degrees F.) I suggest the one that is one up from the coldest range. I bought the next one up and my engine runs at 186 to 200 degrees, still to warm for my liking. Very easy to install, about 45 min. costs less than $30.
