I don't think it would be the timing belt. Check you timing marks if it is fine then take out you thermostat see if that helps. I went through 3 thermotsats before i got one that worked.

Also wash the outside of your radiator. They are large fin rads and get a lot of crud packed in them easily.

or if you have the nasty aftermarket aluminium and plastic radiator it doesn't like to keep things as cool.


but yes, wash out the radiator really well, check the thermostat, timing, trunk monkey, water pump, coolant level, tire pressure, oil pressure, blinker piston compression, and exhaust for blockage.

I'm using the stock '94 1.3 radiator with my 1.6 with no overheating problems even on the warm days like today.

People on Zuwharrie say both for and against the stock radiator causing overheating. Seems like the biggest pro is just having one that isn't clogged up.
