When the t-stat opens you should be able to see coolant flow.

Well, first I will check for debris and see if I can't repair some of the fin damage toward the lower part of the radiator. If that doesn't do it, I'll try the backflush idea. If that doesn't work, it may be off to the junk yard for me.

My 93SSEi runs about 20 hotter than my 95 SLE/SC.

Having ruled nearly everything else out, I believe my radiator core is crudding up on the SSEi. I'll be doing this soon as well.
