2000 Opel Combo • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 127 miles

Where on the radiator can I find the tap/screw/valve that allows more cooling?

Thanks for your reply. The engine runs too hot in summer when driving fast or very slow in traffic jams.A car dealer told me there`s way of switching the radiator from half(winter use) to full(summer use)via a screw located on the radiator. The problem is I can`t find this screw anywhere on the radiator and thought you might know more.

Go back and ask him where it is I think he told you a JOKE? You could temp test with infrared meter to see if the whole thing is hot? If it heats in traffic is your fan coming on? Almost sounds like its clogged?
