I will do that. Im thinking changing the glow plugs (all of them) will be a good start to see where I stand. Then from there Ill check to see how the injectors are performing.
On the way down from Oregon, I did take the car up a pretty steep hill, the car got about 115 ( the gauge states 40 80 120) and then when i went down hill, the temp went back down to about 100 and stayed there for the remaining five hour trip. I did do a radiator flush but did not check the radiator flow. I will also start the easy way by changing the thermostat.
Silly question, but where is the temp switch on these cars? What does it look like? Is it similar to the thermostat switch?
