That would maybe let the fan, "FREEWHEEL" more than it should (this is sorta a fuel saving feature, less HP, to move the fan) If it sorta barely moves, then air is not pulled over the radiator fins, to cool it.
Is the A/C condenser, full of crap preventing air flow?
A reputable parts store, will be able to tell you if there is a problem with it. You can compare a new one with your old one (if yours is cold) Notice any difference in the way it turns, compared to yours?
How quick does your overheat? 5 minutes, 15 miles, etc.?
Does it drop in temp, if you are at speed. Heat up at idle mostly?
For sure, is it too HOT. Or does maybe a faulty sender or temp gauge just telling you it is?
Please consider a to help us answer more questions.
