The system may be overfull, there may be a restriction, or there may be a head gasket issue. Does it overheat?

I thought about a leak too but its not leaking I had my mechanic check it out when he flushed it out but when I look down in the raditor it looks like the is alot of rust and scale in it so would it be a good idea to replace the raditor

It won't hurt to replace, but If it isn't plugged or leaking, I wouldn't.
