I have a 93 TA 350,auto,EFI,. The Car has ~ 100K on it and lately I have
noticed that when the AC is on and the operating temerature gets in to say
230, I get a really bad miss or cutout when I accelerate. A few times all
the dash lights came on too. It kind of acts like I'am loosing ignition.
Have anyone encountered this before? Any help or ideals about what might
cause this would be great.
If the temp is in fact reaching 230 degrees?
Please stop driving the car, and check why it is getting so hot!
That temperature range is way out of normal for the engine and can cause
damage, if damage is not why it is already running that hot.
Check the coolant level at the radiator, COLD please. Then with the cap on
only one click, start the engine. See if coolant explosively shoots into the
recovery tank as soon as you start the engine.
That may be one of your problems.
Let the group know what happens, and we can guide you the rest of the way.
My fan comes on at precisely 216f. At least that is what it is supposed to
do for a 95 LT1. What a fan it must be because it momentarily dims my dash
lights. The engine then cools down considerably. I would be worried if it
stayed over 200f for any length of time.
