    High temp alarm but no code ?

    04GTX SC.

    Running full out for 8-10 min . Got high temp alarm. Checked- no coolant in bilge. Coolant bottle up to line as expected. Smelled hot. Waited a few minutes. No more alarm. Rode the last 8 miles or so at 50 mph. No more alarm.

    I wanted to see if it was exhaust or engine. No error codes stored so ???

    perhaps time for a new thermostat ? Another post suggested a bubble in the lines so "fooled" the sensors ?

    Check your hoses and clamps from the pump to the exhaust manifold, then to the water box. Sounds like a classic lack of water into the system.

    WB high temp doesn't keep a code. Just an instant limp mode

    You might of sucked something up and when you stoped to check it freed itself.

    Full out for 8-10 min? You flushed the waterbox of water, it was nice and hot. if you caught a little air and sucked air in the system, then when it hit the waterbox it threw an alarm.....you're fine. Limit your length of WOT's....

    I looked the hoses and checked the clamps before getting it out tho year. I didnt notice anything but I'll go over the exhaust part again.

    That makes sense-- cant shove enough water at WOT. It was a little choppy--

    I'll find out again next Saturday. If I keep it down to 50 or so for a while and it doesnt overheat-- all is well

    Thanks folks !

    can drill the pisser holes on the jpipe for a bit more water into your exhaust.

    Run the bypass line into the WB with a nipple. I'd never try that on a stock exhaust though.
