Is your radiator fan going on, as temp rises it should. Don't let it get to hot or you could damage engine. You also could replace thermostat. Finally just because a radiator does not leak doesn't mean its not bad, it could be clogged not cooling water.

Yes the radiator fan is going on as temp rises.. Thermostat is also have been replaced ... But the temp rises...


I would lean toward bad/clogged radiator. By the way they didn't mix different antifreeze, because some mixes turn into a gel in the system, check to make sure. It should still be in fluid state.
