Hi:
Does it overheat at highway speeds? If so, the flush may not have gotten rid of the radiator problem. I want you to try something. With the engine COLD, remove the radiator cap. Next, start the engine and watch the coolant. When the engine reaches normal operating temp, the thermostat should fully open and you should see the coolant freely circulating in the radiator.

Let me know what you find.

Joe
