Why prone to overheating?
#7
Ruan's pretty comprehensively covered that! Especially agree with the rotting rads point, they always end up leaking in the bottom corner or thereabouts. That's been the end of many a 306 and ZX after a half arsed repair and then people weigh them in when they fail again soon afterwards.
If you look after the coolant system they tend to look after you pretty well. My mothers 306 is testament to that with 250,000 miles on it and counting Smile
Even with the gasket gone they can keep going for ages. A mates been running his over 7 months now. He's just drilled a few holes in the rad cap to release the pressure and tops up regularly.
