YOU NEED TO DRAIN RADIATOR AND ENGINE BLOCK.NEED TO DRAIN THE BOTTOM WATER PIPE.DISCONNECT THE TOP AND BOTTOM WATER HOSES.SEPERATE THE UPPER FROM THE LOWER RADIATOR SHROUD AND REMOVE THE UPPER SHROUD FROM THE CAR.REMOVE THE CROSSMEMBER AND HEADER TANK.REMOVE THE CONTROL ROD FROM THE DRAIN TAP.REMOVE THE LOWER MOUNTING SCREWS AND RUBBER MOUNTING CUSHIONS.THEN LIFT OUT THE RADIATOR.IF CAR HAS AIR CONDITIONER YOU NEED TO DETACH THE CONDENSOR FROM ITS MOUNTING BRACKETS DONT DISCONNECT ANY CONDENSOR REFRIGERANT LINES. YOU NEED TO SUPPORT CONDENSOR WITH SOME WIRE TO KEEP IT FROM FALLING BEING DAMAGED.
sounds like your condensor is working great with forced air pushing through i.e. driving ...i would start by cleaning the condensor with high pressure air blowing through the radiator towards front of car you can use a hose with water as well ...you should be able to hold a light behind the radiator and see straight through from the condensor ...if you can not see through..you have a plugged up condensor ..
That certainly is quite a jump, and it leads me to wonder about the condensor unit. It sits in front of the radiator. Make absolutely sure that the fan is running when the A/C engages, and run a gentle stream of water through the A/C condensor to clean out any road debris (Bugs, leaves, etc, etc) from the condensor.
Most common problem is debris build up on the radiator front, or debris build up on the AC condensor causing no or little air flow through the radiator and AC condensor. The radiator and AC condensor must have good air flow to keep everything cool, debris on the AC condensor will cause your AC temp to be high even with a proper AC charge. If there is no debris on the radiator or AC condensor and there is no white smoke coming out of the tailpipe and no loss of coolant, I would suspect a stopped up radiator on the inside or a bad water pump, good luck, Gary
Sounds like you might have a plugged drain hose from your condensor overflow reservoir. All of the water that drips off the condensor while you run your AC has to go somewhere. It's located under the passenger floor board and if it's not draining properly you can get a lot of water sitting in there.
Possibly fan clutch or clogged radiator/condensor.
To check for fan clutch, hook up A/C gauges, turn a/c on watch high side gauge. 300 psi. and above run water on condensor, if psi. goes down to about 250 psi and holds. replace fan clutch.
If not, check radiator/condensor for dibris outside, and or corrosion inside the radiator.
