Every time i wanted to drive the soup,i had to pop the hood,use a vice grip to hold the hood up,unscrew the overflo and pour the antifreeze back into the radiator.I had to do this everytime i wanted to drive somewhere.All that unnecessary steps ARE DONE.What i did was retorque the head bolts to 75 pounds,i can't wait to see the responses from who ever reads this when they concentrate on the double digit that i used for the torque.I hope most of you supra fans out there agree that 75 is'nt to much:icon_cry:.In town is when she would over heat.those dam red lights.Let me know some of your feed back.i'm sure i'll know what the responses will be.:icon_bigg

The accepted torque here(contrary to the book), is 72 to 75 ft. lbs. Mine is torqued that hard as well.

Is there a fan shroud on your radiator? If not, that could be the reason your car is overheating in city traffic.
