    Default Citroen Car Club of Vic at the Melb GP

    better late than never...
    here are a few photos from the Citroen car club display at the Melb Grand Prix...
    raising the profile of our beloved cars...

    This was my Tractions first longer trip with me at the Helm and she went well sitting on 70 degrees temp
    until we reached the Circuit and then sitting in traffic had it's toll with the temp going up to 80 degrees and finally sitting idling in a service road it hit 100 degrees and coolant started to trickle on to the ground...
    Leaving the circuit after 4 days (and replacing lost coolant) I didn't encounter any overheating issues driving 100 kms home ( but no standstill traffic)
    I'm thinking partially blocked radiator so another job ahead..
    also 2 kms from home the exhaust pipe broke away just before the rear muffler...
    off to a exhaust place today....any thoughts whether a universal muffler is ok for rear? or do I need a special type???
    On a learning curve with the Traction !!!
    cheers

    I'm surprised the traction has such a big muffler. It'll be aftermarket either way to just find whatever is the cheapest that'll fit ...... and I'm sure it'll be fine. My fathers traction has a really nice burbly sounding exhaust note. I assumed they must have had just one tiny muffler and no resonator.

    Sounds like you need to also pull the water pump and check the impeller too. I would have thought at idle it would be least likely to overheat (unless there was little coolant flow). Did you put a stocking in the hoses to try and trap any crap flowing out of the motor? Gerry seemed to think it was likely the coolant tube in the head of the one here was rusted out given the crap I caught in the radiator stocking.

    Andy, It is not difficult to import the correct muffler from CTA. The car will look better run better and sound better with the proper fitting. Alternatively you could speak to Rob Little of CCOCA spares.
    Cheers Gerry

    A stocking is a good idea but make sure it doesn't reach the overflow pipe and cause a blockage. D's don't have this problem.

    Photos are great.

    John.
