It was mentioned about pressure washing the radiator. I was under the impression it was very important NOT to pressure wash for fear of bending the fins and restricting the air flow.

I haven't seen mentioned here that most commonly engine-damaging overheating of an xV92 is not caused by regular operation but by sudden loss of coolant. That can happen several ways, but there is one known issue that is discussed here a lot, and that is the coolant hoses to-from the air compressor.

If those have not been changed they will be found to be extremely brittle and easily broken. It is a difficult job to replace them, but many of us consider it a critical thing to do with any old PT. I certainly was relieved when I got mine done two years ago, particularly as I watched the lines fall apart as they were being removed!
