Ok here goes....I have a 2006 Pajero 3.2 diesel automatic. Have had it 12mths. It overheats when under load only.
Have flushed radiator (2yrs old). replaced the cap. Replaced Thermostat , fan clutch, water pump.
I know it's starting to get hot because the transmission starts jerking in low gear. The person before said he didn't have a problem but I don't think he worked it. It was summer when I bought it and I towed a van, in the beginning didn't have a problem. The oil cooler to the trans has the bottom a bit dented...before I got the bash plates. Is there any way to know if it's the trans or motor causing the problem? Or any other ideas what it could be......I just want to go up a steep hill without dramas 😀 Tarnia
