Clogged radiator or passage in the engine block of the cooling system ?


Try a cooling system flush.


I did flush the cooling system

Kelly Mayo

does it get hot standing still or at highway speeds or both??

Logy Gogo

Standing still


Are you positive that the vehicle is overheating and not just a bad temp gauge saying it is overheating ? Also feel the top and bottom radiator hoses once vehicle has reached operating temp if both feel the same could just be a bad temp gauge. If bottom hose gets hot and the top hose stays lukewarm remove t- stat then reinstall hose to see if it overheats with out t-stat installed.
