    Heat is the enemy of LR engines - the cooler the better, within reason. you are right, 220 is way too hot.

    Put in a new radiator. They aren't that much. A new Nissens is $150-ish.

    1) You are a creative speller. 2) Sounds like a mechanical issue with the throttle cable and/or anything related to it. Pedal, throttle body, etc. But I'm just throwin' darts.
