I commute with this car about 80 miles a day. Lately it's been trying to overheat. Sometimes successfully. It has a new water pump which I replaced recently when I did the timing belt kit. It also has a new thermostat and housing/outlet. The system has been flushed and refilled with dex-cool antifreeze/coolant. After all that the car still wants to overheat, but only when doing freeway speeds or going up a hill ect. Basically when the engine is reving or turning more then 2000/2500 rpms. I have to keep the heater going full blast and sumtimes that isn't even enough to keep it cool. I now have the radiator out of the car and I flushed it out with the garden hose. It doesn't seem to be clogged. The tubes that I'm able to see( only a few) don't look clogged. Should I replace the radiator anyways? Or try reinstalling it and see if it helped? Or do you think it could be a clogged cat converter? I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. Eric
