Miata turbo running extremly hot.
Hey guys, i'm just done building a turbo setup, it's off the dyno and runs and pulls great.
But I have a serious overheat problem.
The Car is equipped with the following :
BEGI Reroute, Yonaka 2inch radiator with 2 fans.
I had overheating problem yesterday because i had prestone leaks, I fixed those up, everything is really tight now, nothing leaks.
I went back on the road, to test it and see how it was going, after only 5 minutes of pushing it a bit, the ECU (MS reading) sensor was showing 105 celcius and still climbing, so I went back home.
The gauge sensor is brand new (was broken), and it was showing between 11:00 and 12:00 even when the MS said 105 celcius.
I did notice a new problem, out of my 2 fans, only one is working, the one on the driver side. Could only 1 fan out of 2 be making the engine goes that hot that quick ?
What could be the cause ? It's climbing toward 100 slowly (not spiking).
