The radiator may be blocked either internally or externally,check on the outside to see if it is clogged with insects or other debris,if is is clear try using a good quality radiator cleaner & see if it helps if not you may have to have the system flushed out by a qualified radiator repairer......hope this helps.....cheers

Car run hot what is the problem


First thing to check is probably a stuck thermostat. Then the water pump. Head leak. The price and ease of most thermostats is usually replaced first, then further troubleshooting if needed.

Suspect you have a loose clamp on a radiator hose or the oil change guy made something leak. There is a tool which is similar to a a bicycle pump in that it pressurizes the water system and your engine does not have to run or be hot to test. Some major auto parts stores may have a loaner.

Its going to stay hot and lose pressure until you fix the leak.
