Can anyone tell me why my car will still overheat? Has an electric fan and clutch fan, new thermostat, antifreeze, and only sometimes it will overheat, especially during the day would it be cause im using the KA radiator? but it wouldnt overheat before it was running fine...and i was just wondering where should the gauge be at on the dash?

i have a S14, and the gauge stayed a little lower than half-way most of the time. are you using the bleeder screw on the coolant neck to bleed it?

check your fan operation also see when it kicks on or if it stays on all the time. if its hooked up to a thermostat the fan normally kicks in at around 180degress around the time your thermostat opens
