Hi Thakur,

We do not have any data on the vehicle and you would have to provide some answers to enable us to understand your vehicle.

1. Is vehicle equipped with electric cooling fans or mechanical fans? If mechanical fans, is it viscous coupling type?

2. Do you need to top up radiator coolant most of the time?

3. When AC is turned on, does driving at moderate speed help to maintain the temperature?
