Low speed overheating us usually due to airflow through the radiator (or a lack of it) but a clogged radiator and/or a worn out water pump impeller can do it too. Check the fan and check for coolant flow.

Agree with Tracy....I've owned several of these cars. You can also increase the amount of anti-freeze to water ratio and ADD an aftermarket electric fan. First check the radiator and see if it needs a recore, then the next cheapest is to replace both the thermostat and the water pump.

Does anyone know were i can get the 2 140° thermostats from? Or if they need to be put back or can they be left out? Thanks
