On Sunday my wife and I took our Cobra out for a drive and for no reason what so ever the engine overheated!

The car is at our local dealer now and they are thinking possible T-stat. I am thinking possible engine damage.

Has there been anyone else with this problem and what have you done to solve it?

Sorry, I haven't had this problem before. Let us know what you find out from the shop.

Check your coolant...if you have one of the early '03's...it's probably green (like mine) and doesn't meet Ford's specs for the '03 s/c engine. The latter builds got the proper yellow coolant and this solved the problem;) Your dealer should make this change for you under warranty!:thumbsup: Steve

I guess I'd better go check the color of my coolant too! Thanks for the tip. :thumbsup:
