Check the thermostat. That's the only restriction in line. Another possibility, plugged radiator. Rust builds up from improper maintenance of the cooling system. The anti-freeze does wear and it is a rust inhibitor. Try removing the thermostat, replace the coolant with water and a radiator cleaner, follow the package instructions and see what comes out of the radiator. If it's a lot of rust you may have foound your problem. Best of luck.

: Hello All,

: Did some maintanance on my 2A today and added water to the radiator. I took it out for a run around the block and when I returned home, it was overheating? It never overheated in the past, so I was perplexed on why now all of a sudden it would do this. Any thoughts from my fellow 2A owners?

: Thanks

: Chris
