Unhappy overheating rhino

I have a 2006 Rhino. we hooked up fan to run continuosly. But, now and then, it will still overheat. What value would there be in Engine Ice Coolant? And, is there a thermostat in a Rhino that could be malfunctioning? Finally, what does anyone have to offer as a remedy to this chronic overheating?

There is a good possibility you are leaking compression into you system in turn creating an air pocket. There is no thermostat.

I had this same problem for a bit and found that my radiator just had to much dirt and shit packed in it.

possibly need to "burp" the cooling system. You may have an air bubble in the lines.

Also, if you put a K&N filter and/or snorkeled your rhino without rejetting the engine could be running too lean and that will definitely over heat your engine. But 1st check your radiator fins to see if they are clean.
