VN Berlina
Aye ppl i just got my Ps two weeks ago and i got handed the keys to an atlas grey 91' VN Berlina. The car goes hard....when it wants to. Some days it'll pull hard and other days it just doesnt want to move.

One day i got **** scared coz when i floored it the temperature gauge started goin up really fast so i let go of the accelerator and it fell back down to normal. Other days when i give it a bit to see if the temperature gauge doesnt go up.

I was thinking a head gasket issue but the overheating would be occouring more. any ideas?

thanks alot!

check all cooling system components.. eg radiator, check for leaking coolant anywhere.. may be your inlet maifold gasket but the temp would be a little shaky. up sometimes and down others...

Does your top raditor hose go real hard? If it doesn't the thermostat might be not be opening.

About the dull performance of the car, Do a complete service on her, just so you know everything is working 100%. this includes:
-Air filter
-Oil change + filter
-Spark plugs and leads
-fuel filter

*Radiator flush and new thermostat if temeperature issue continues.
