    I do a lot of traveling on dirt roads. In Florida like many states, they tend to get a washboard surface. I searched and searched for the right vehicle. I was driving a Veloster. Now I hardly notice the bumps with my Vehicross. What a difference! I...

    Well its not exactly Vehicross related so.. I was at the Hyundai dealer and saw their new Ironman edition Kona in the showroom . I was laughing when the saleman showed up. I said, "it looks a lot like the one Isuzu built 20 years ago!" It even has...

    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...

    also went through three ‘new’ fan clutches before finding the right one. lots of bad totally incorrectly spec’d clutches out there supposedly for our Vx. at one point she sounded like a 747 taking off.

    Yet another piece of advice from the FB group... Here in Texas mine used to run warmer, but switched to electric fan to replace clutch driven one. Also check your transmission, I have always believed that can make temp rise as well, check fluid and...

    If it's still getting hot at speed it could be something else. The clutch fan only helps till 30-40 mph. Another thing you might check is a dirty radiator and size also. Stock is 1 1/2" thick at the core ( I have been told by 1 person) mine is 1...

    A few have had an issue with the AC compressor needing service. If it runs hot it's enough to heat up the engine bay to that point. I'll check and see what else...I know that there have been some recent discussions about this.

    You'll have good sales if you post on the VehiCROSS Facebook group too. That group is much more active than this forum.

    It looks like on the OEM radiator the nipples for the rubber lines are different lengths from the first note above. If you do Facebook the VehiCROSS group there is much more active than this forum.

    Some other comments from Eric... Most likely there would not be a substantial change if they were reversed. It’s a 1” pipe or so that sits in the bottom of the radiator. They flow of coolant is directional though on how it flows. So there may...

    Never done mine but I chatted with another member and this was his response...They do matter. Hot side goes to the short passenger side port. The return is the long drivers side one. Hope this helps.
