Cooling fans operating properly? Dirt and debris blocking the radiator air flow? Internally restricted radiator? Cooling hoses collapsing while driving? The dreaded blown Headgasket. HTH

    My Cruiser over heats when climbing hills. I replaced the radiator cap, thermostat and the radiator plugs. I hear the fan when the car is turned off. What else could it be.
