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?
