    Welcome. I too made the pilgrimage from San Diego to Phoenix, so I'm aware of the hot desolation of I-10 mid-summer. Welcome!

    Hoping someone can help me out with my issue. The car ran great when I picked it up apart from a fairly heavy fuel smell coming from the engine bay (could not see any obvious leaks anywhere). Before bringing it into a shop I decided to replace the...

    Welcome AZMusclecar! I'm near Prescott. I used to have a VX and now have Trooper RS. I'll add you to our Zu events I sometimes organize. Also join the FaceBook group "Arizona Isuzu 4-Wheelers". There's frequently some wheeling going on.

    IIRC it has always been in a cold weather state. The only reason I think it's a hotter thermostat is the impression I got from the previous owner. I wouldn't put it past him to rummage through his garage and pick up a thermostat and say "we'll make...

    Addition of a tranny cooler could help that engine bay temp as well.

    That's odd for sure...I keep going back to the radiator thickness...not sure about that but seems that is the one item that is different.

    Well...it's not the Freon and I thought maybe ac compressor so I got a shorter serpentine belt and bypassed it, no difference. Here's the odd part.....It actually runs cooler (almost normal) with A/C blasting and set at 75*

    I have this high temp issue too. Something I have noticed when running the A/C is keeping the revs near 2500 rpms (65 mph cruising) will keep the temp gauge right in the middle. With the A/C off I can drive all day at 70+ mph no problem.

    1 1/4" may not be enough based on what others have posted. Seems small but they spec'd it that way for a reason from the factory.

    Radiator is 1 1/4" from rock auto, tried to find 1 1/2" to no avail, Trans fluid is full (checked a few times) and I've gone through a few clutch fans and all had same result. New one with new design does sound like a jet taking off, when I stand in...

    AC issue as above and the fix...Ok so after many, many, MANY hours spent on the overheating issue, it seems to have been caused by having too much freon in the system, causing the condenser to run hot & thereby causing a hotter engine compartment....
