cold case

So my girl has developed a leak , I know right. Anyway new cold case was ordered, thermostat and probably a new temp gauge. I have a mechanical now and its was off. I think maybe the copper tubing has kinked or something. Either way I'm converting to electrical. REALLY looking forward to aluminum and ditching the stocker.

That's good to know seeing I dropped 400 or so $$ on that baby.

Re: cold case

I think you'll love it! My 69 Chevelle with a BB hasn't gone over 180 since installing the Cold Case.

Re: cold case

I just put in a cold case with their fan set. I had no cooling problems before except that on a hot day if i didn't keep moving the gauge would creep up and make me uncomfortable. Never overheated. Anyway it seems to do a good job but once up to temp the fans basically never cycle off. With a temp gun it seems to be fine at 180 at the thermostat housing.

Also got in the car the other day and the fans fired up on a cold engine.....went out to the switch and jiggled it and they shut off. Came on later when up to temp. Bad switch maybe?

Possible or the wiring itself.
I'd recheck grounds and the diagram and make sure it's all hooked up right and snug.
Once the fans go on, they don't turn off until it cools to 170

Thanks Eric. Then they likely wouldn't shut off with a 180 thermostat, right? I did notice that the terminal on the switch seems a bit loose in the body of the switch itself. Not sure that's right. Switch to ground turns fans on so not sure how a cold switch could mean a poor ground. I'll check them just the same.

Re: cold case

Is it our wiring kit and thermos switch? If so, they will turn off at 170, as long as you are using our switch.

Re: cold case

Re: cold case

Yea that can be normal. Some stay loose or are designed like that. As long as your have the wire tightened with the nuts, that's the main concern.

Re: cold case

btw, I'm pretty sure the sending unit is set to turn on at 190 and not 180. If you want more control over when, a lot of guys splice in a manual switch for the dash so on really hot days, you can turn the fans on immediately instead of waiting until 190.

Fool around, get hurt, don't come crying to me.
