Recently, I bought a barely used radiator from a guy on Ratsun. Waaaaaay better shape than the one I had. Fixed the leaking problems, but she still overheats!
It is bigger than the one that came out of my car, I wonder what car it came from?
Funny thing is, since it is a larger radiator, it should keep my car cooler. . . . . right? Aaaaannd it really only gets to that overheating point on the freeway. Also, once it starts to run hot it continues to do so until the engine is turned off and cools down for several minutes to an hour.
Like.... what the fuck? hahaha. no airways are restricted by a bag etc., coolant is 50/50 premixed. . . i've replaced the cap, thermostat, water pump.... shit, even the coolant reservoir. Even removed the thermostat altogether, which helped, but still. . . when i get on the freeway, it'll steaily climb to almost H. I didnt replace the hoses, could they be collapsing at high RPM's? Like, that is very literally the only cooling system related thing that I haven't bought new.
And I bought my behbeh for $250, it had sat there in this lady's driveway for almost 8 YEARS. There were rodents living in it at some point, so is it at all possible that they could have got into the tail pipe, creating backpressure or some shit?
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck...... I'm stumped.
Any help will be immensely appreciated
