A blocked radiator will show a few symptoms, depending on how may core tubes are actually blocked, normally you will see the temp gauge penduluming a little, you will get coolant over flowing with the filler cap off, the bottom of the radiator will feel some what cooler than normal, radiators need to be core cleaned and a simple back flush is not good enough.
