Its got signs of being a euro, but all these damned cars are interchangeable so you never know anymore.

Beautiful car none the less.

Its's a euro. All thats left to do on it is to replace the throw out bearing and re wire the stereo. By the way i think my car runs a little hot. Do you any of you guys know how could fix that. It runs around 100, some days a little more until the fan kicks in and some days a little less.

many people acaully take the plastic shroad off the bottom of the car that is under the engine, it lets your car keep cooler better.

I already removed the shroud so i'm not sure why it is still heating up.

It may be that thermo switch has gone faulty. If anyhow cooling system kicks in but at the wrong temperature than 99.99% is just this. It should be cheap and first step to do; most importantly it is a DIY thing.

If your temp is fine on cool day on hwy than your thermostat/coolant should be fine.
