Engine Cooling problem
1989 Dodge Spirit 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 60,000 miles
Replaced leaking radiator which I filled every 2-3 days.
Now overheats. Replaced thermostat subsequently.
1)Top hose is extremely hot, but radiator cold.
3)Bottom hose is about 1/2 as hot?
5)Noticed it only took about 1/2gal antifreeze to fill radiator.
Suspect I got a Chinese ripoff radiator(generic box, no writing on it).
How can I verify/test the radiator?
Thanks, Mike Balto, MD
