81 vanagon (air cooled) over heating
needs muffler…does this have any affect on overheating?


#2

The muffler should not make it overheat. But why not have it fixed before you asphyxiate yourself. I would guess the engine is not getting the airflow it needs. Good luck on finding an air cooled mechanic.

Second that!


#4

Every mechanic is air cooled unless he is swimming or in the shower.:wink:


#5

One thing to check is whether or not the fan is running and the is no blockage of the airflow to the engine. If airflow is good, I wonder if there is a lubrication problem.
