1987 944 Overheating


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 190k+;

The car heats up very quickly, the fan does not come on even when the gauge hits the red and the reservoir does not get warm. The two hoses from the engine do get hot and there is no blockage between them and the reservoir (squash them and you can hear the fluids flowing through the reservoir). The pump was changed when I bought the car 2 years ago. Is there a thermostatic valve that bypasses the cooling system until the car hits normal operating temps?
