    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. After taking freon out to where the pressure was correct, the overheating issue has now stopped. Turns out, a faulty gauge was showing that there was not enough freon in the system. Adding freon caused too much pressure & made the condenser work harder than necessary & run hot. I just can't believe it's not overheating anymore!!!!!! 😊😊😊

    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 front of the VX I can feel the air being pulled in (of course not when it's moving )...I'll check the Freon next

    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.

    A few have switched to an electric fan with good results.
