Dear all Naza Ria owner,

From all the feed back from Naza Ria Family Club, workshop, Kia Service Centre and many Ria owner, they have the same worry.
Once the engine overheat, it will cost them Rm12,000 for "short engine
" replacement. Is like carry a "time bomb" in our MPV

For normal japanese car, if the engine overheat, they only need to replace their gasket and skim the engine head but for Naza Ria, the whole engine will bend and if you lucky, you only need to replace the piston liner(that also few thousand).

The reason for overheating is,

1. Broken plastic "T" pipe (can be replace by metal "T")
2. Leaking rediator hose
3. Electric fan break down
4. Thermal valve jam

Overheating will happen in less than a minutes if any of above happen.
We did't look at the water temp all the time when we drive. What can we do?

We need a warning system for our Ria. 2 days ago, I install a after market "Racing water tempurature meter" and this meter do comes with warning buzzer and light. You can set the maximum temp by yourself. I set the max temp to 95 degree and if the water temp go beyound this, the buzzer will sound together with the warning light so I can can stop my car as soon as possible and prevent expensive damage to the engine.

With this modification, I can drive the car without any worry.
For those owner that have the same worry as I do, you can do the same. The price of the meter(comes with sensor) is Rm280 + hose adaptor RM38 and labour RM30. Total Rm348.

Dear all, thanks for showing interest in this product. I already test this meter for the past one week and I found out there is a minor problem with it. That is why I did't reply your all.
The problem is - Its happen 2 times, when I switch off my engine, the meter did't go back to 0 degree. It stop at 20 degree. So when you start your engine, the temperature will show 20 degree higher. You need to reset the meter before use and you got to reset your warning/over temperature again. For those that still interested in this product, you can call RS One at 012-62777768.

Even with this little "bug", I still think it worth the money. This meter will give me warning in case of overheating with resulting in very expensive repair.

For your information, When your engine run on NGV, the water tempurature is higher by 5-8 degree compare to petrol. Over the OEM water temp, it show no different at all.

Mercedes engine run very hot (80C - 95C) and can overheat without warning if the main fan or electric fans fail. There is no car overheat warning other than to watch the temperature gauge.

There is an affordable solution to this problem. A thermistor circuit which sounds an alarm & lights up an LED when the radiator overheats.
