ok when I first bought my R, the temp light took about 10-15 minutes to come on, and only if I let it idle that long.(just to make sure everything was working when I bought it)

now the temp light will come on quicker, noticably quicker...
the fan starts running sooner than the light but now it seems as if the fan cannot overcome the heat. When she was new the fan would run for a little bit then shut off. like it was cooling the machine enough. Now when the fan and light come on they stay on until I start moving forward (getting more fresh air)

Is this common??? do other machines perform like this, I cannot be the only one that cares more about the health of my machine than about my own can I???

Mine never has come on and I have clutched my way through some long slow trails expecting it to come on. You have problems sir. I am switching to purple engine ice anyway for a little insurance.
