    Injection Timing?

    With all the things done to solve this overheating problem would injection timing have any influence on this? I guess the only way to check is to physically look at the timing belt to make sure all timing marks line up.

    Timing is fine, have just changed belt etc, but no change in getting warm. Doesn't seem to matter, fourth or fifth gear, still climbs at to the 3/4 mark sitting on 85-90kmh.

    Summing it up, I have replaced everything to do with the cooling system, even the heater element, but no change to the symptoms. I will test the coolant for exhaust gases though it doesn't use any coolant so cant be anything major. Will install a more accurate temp gauge and monitor.

    I'm pulling the engine out this weekend to replace clutch so a closer look at air flow will be good.
