Maybe particaly blocked radiator flushing is a preventive maintence rad. Can be blocked with calcium deposits.

The radiator was flushed a couple of months ago and the tank was cleaned.
Could the air filter cause this?
I appreciate your help.

No air filter will not. Has the temp been verefied with another gague? Does it boil over?

I have not put a gauge on it other than the one on the dash but I can smell it when it gets hot. I'll try to check it tomorrow.
