Overheating Citroen ZX 1.8

Post by mazidee » 31 May 2002, 11:22

I am the owner of Citroen ZX 1.8 Estate with XU7 engine. Recently one of the radiator cooling fax stop working and I got it replaced. Both low and high speed fan running fine with the aircond on. However I notice that if I drive a slope or climbing up hill (gear drop), the temprature increase up to more that 90 and sometimes 100 depends on how long the climbing on the hill. Once the car cruise at the flat normal road the temprature back to normal 90 or slighly below. Milage is 105,000km and I did a flush at 100,000km already. Is it due to the preasure cap problem or the head gasket blown.
Thanks in advance for any advise.
