|Car Talk / Re: Overheating While Ac Is On – What To Do by aikerism(m): 9:02am On Dec 25, 2021|
Good morning Guys...
I started experiencing a spike in my Peugeot 307SW temperature immediately I turn on the AC...
I did so much to solve the problem. From changing the top gasket, to removing, opening and washing my Radiator, I changed the radiator bottle and got a new cover, made sure my Fan was working well etc...
Still no Joy...
After reading this thread yesterday... I went to a nearby Car wash and they pointed their hoses towards to vent in the bumper...
Mehnnnn so much dirt had accumulated there o... As a matter of fact the condenser was looking like it was now a filter for the radiator. It was clogged and very dirty. After the flush and wash my cooling system obviously breathes well now... No more overheating with or without the AC.
I paid N300 to have my condenser flushed...
Now I have peace of mind.
Thank you all.

Last year one chick dumped a junior and married police officer and started dating another senior married police officer both in the same check point. The dumped officer out of rage shot and killed the girl, shot and killed his senior officer and when he realised what he had done... also shot himself leaving 3 bodies for the world to see...

I have been eyeing a W203 for a while now... Trying to make up my mind on changing my W202 to it.
But from my personal observation:
(1) the W202 is more roomy (both in width and height, am very tall and the 203 feels a bit tight, if you find yourself in a situation where u have to sit 4 adults behind, the 202 will do better)
(2) for me the 202 is more rugged and reliable and just Oga Cne said d 203 has way too much wire dis and wire dat hence making the 202 more tolerable when it comes to electrical issues.
(3) the 202 has cheaper components. When its time for replacements and also a simpler engine bay compared to the 203 that has sensor this and sensor that.
(*) but I read somewhere that the 202 has a recirculating ball steering while the 203 drives and handles better because it has a rack and pinion steering.( whatever that means )
But truth is the styling and packaging of the 203 is more appealing, it has more toys therefore its nippier than the 202 in dat.

Pls go ahead and get yourself a C180 or a C200.
I have a C200 and have had her since december 2012 and I have had no regrets.
On economy its pocket friendly and its fuel consumption is okay. (I always cover between 255 - 290 km from full tank to half tank depending on traffic situation here in Abuja) the parts are quite affordable.
On perfomance.... my bro Mercedes na Mercedes... my car has a 4 cylinder 2.0ltr naturally aspirated engine and yet it is so fast i wonder what it will be like to drive a super charged one. ( one day i will enter Kaduna and challenge GEE to a race )
so in all, be interested in your future vehicle, and when it comes treat her well... she will treat you well too. all the best and congratulations in advance.

I for one am sick and tired of wasting my precious megabytes only to come and read accusations and counter accusations... I don't think that is the reason for this thread.

and nothing she did could revive the vehicle, it had to be finally towed back home after having run down the battery and affected the kick badly.
Initially the car would crank but remains very powerless, could not accelerate when engaged the gear, now it cant even remain in idling anymore
For the above ehh, I had a similar experience and mine started with me thinking I had fuel when I didn't. Fuel pump relay in the trunk may just be the culprit... So as A.U Hanson has suggested scan the vehicle and since you are not in town see if you can arrange for him to go check it out.
