Try this

But I guess if orange fuel filter water level
Low engine oil?
Low coolant.

thanks admin,
on 1st of april,
i am driving my S.C challenge a road in my place here,
this road i almost the most dificult road in my place here,
70% i hill climbing,
long hill climbing,
in my ride i already change the radiator fluid,add in new toyota coolent,
change the silicon oil for the viscous fan,
change motor oil,15w40,
add extra motor oil cooler,
add extra ATF cooler,
add a 12 inch electric fan in front of the main radiator,
the secondary radiator fan is always on when engine started,
i do all this,
when climbing hill,
my ride over heat,
the 3 warning sign come out 1 by 1.

First which lights came on? From the left.
Then a few causes, hope it's not the first Sad
Cracked head ??? thermostat stuffed, Auto gearbox overheating which would bring up main radiator heat through the cooling lines

Hope you get this sorted mate

Having the front and rear heaters on full blast at the critical point will help cool things.
I used to have a cheap multimeter with temperature function...the probe wire was stuffed into the side of the temp switch on the head and silconed over.....
OK..the reading was rough as not immersed in coolant ...but it showed relative changes while driving....when it got to a certain figure I'd hit the fans...
Clive will probably remember the townace modification of the temp guage....also I think John replaced his townace guage with something more accurate...

Yes the Mason Alarm (have a look on www.townace.com for it)

John fitted an aftermarket guage that showed the temp not just a point somewhere between c and H or if you have a digital one like me a little green square near the middle of the display.
