Check the cooling fan operation, but most of them don't kick on until around 218 to 225 degrees, depending on what the manufacture set it at. That is why a good radiator cap is essential. 210 degrees is still just a little too cool for most fans to kick in.
It has a fan clutch. Am trying to pinpoint whether it's the fan clutch, water pump or radiator. Hoping to get a little help before just replacing parts. Thanks
When the engine is cold see if you can spin the fan by hand, if it spins fairly free or the fan wobbles on the shaft the clutch is bad, you should look for oily residue anywhere on the clutch. If the whole fan and clutch wobble then the water pump is bad. HTH
Thank you that helps narrow it down. Yes I can turn fan easily by hand. And was leaning towards the problem being the fan clutch. Also it it the easier and cheaper part to replace versus radiator or water pump.
Yep that's it, replace the clutch and that should take care of it.
