Default Problem solved! running cool

Well I finally figured out what was making my car run hot. Upon removing my airdam etc from underneath the engine and radiator to install my tranny cooler. I noticed that my radiator was about 33-50 percent blocked with fuzz, leaves, and other junk. I pulled the radiator out and sprayed it out with a garden hose. I tried the air hose, but that didn't do the trick.

Now I can sit in traffic with the AC on while it is 85+ degrees and the car runs at about 205. YAY!!

I bet cleaning out all that crude helped with the cooling as much as the new trani cooler.

Stay out of the weeds.
