Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10
The radiator maybe semi clogged, sometimes sludge gathers down the end tanks and blocks off a percentage of your radiator which in turn struggles to keep the coolant at the required temp. Even if you take the radiator out and stick a hose in it it still looks like its not clogged the water just run off the sludge and still looks clean when it comes out, the sludge kind of goes like a semi hard clay feeling substance.Its worth getting it checked out as if you heat it up enough you may end up warping the head slightley and/or damaging the head gasket.Radiator places take the end tanks off and clean out the core with long tin rods that will clear the build-up. I hope this helps.
