    Cooling system issues.

    Low coolant / leaky hose / clogged radiator / stuck thermostat

    ECU goes into a kind of limp mode or something when things get heated and cooling system isn't coping

    I have had the same problem for a few years now. A post earlier mentioned installing a resister on the air temp sensor. ""My question is what ohm should i install and how to install it?"" This will fool the computer to think the air temp is normal not 140deg which will retard the timing which causes loss of power.
    thank you
