make sure the radiator fan is working and nothing is blocking the radiator. squeeze all cooling lines while car is running and feel for pressure and heat (checking for restrictions). also, does your car run out of coolant or leak? if it runs out of coolant but does not leak, then you may have cracked a cylinder wall or something in the head. you can have the head magnafluxed to check for cracks. best of luck in fixing this irritating problem. :thumbup:

Might want to check the block and the radiator for blockages. Make sure water flows well because blockages is what this story is screaming.

::AsleepZ:: blockages are exactly what I had him check for. he appears to be clear of them...or so it would seem...
