I HAD A STANDARD 1985 MERCEDES 190E 2.0 AUTO, I HAD FITTED A 2.5-16V ENGINE WITH A 2.5-16V AUTO GEARBOX FROM A DONAR CAR, WHICH IS A 1989 MERCEDES 2.5-16V COSWORTH, WITH ALL THE LOOMS/ELECTRONICS/RELAYS INSTALLED/FITTED BY A MERCEDES SPECIALSIST...<br> <br> THE PROBLEM THAT I AM EXPERIANCING AT THE MOMENT IS THAT THE ENGINE IS OVERHEATING, TO TRY TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM THE MERCEDES SPECIALIST HAD BRIDGED MY COOLING FAN TO BE CONSTANTLY ON WHEN I START THE CAR. WE DID NOT REPLACE THE RADIATOR AT THE TIME OF THE CONVERSION BECAUSE THE DONAR CAR'S RADIATOR WAS DAMAGED, SO WE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT OUT....<br> <br> I WANT TO KNOW WHAT OTHER MEANS COULD I POSSIBLE DO TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM!!!!

I can't help with overrevving. If you changed ALL sensors, servos and a brainbox (computer), it all should work. But I used to have a 1983 Renault Fuego, and I replaced damaged radiator (aluminium) with a copper one from a 1982 Fuego. I had constant overheating problems. Overheating stopped when I put in the new OEM radiator.
