The car will begin to over heat and you cannot use the air conditioner. I will need to make frequent stops to cool it down.
Do you
have the same problem?

Does the fan work? Is the radiator full? Open the radiator, can you see coolant flowing with the engine on?

The fan is spinning and the radiator is full and flowing. Could it need a flush?

Yes, it could.

Is it a mechanical or electric fan?

Okay, can you see evidence once of any fluid leakage on it? Can you rock it back and forth lightly pushing the blades on either side of toward the engine?

I'm banking on a restricted radiator!

Flush?

Heck no, that usually don't get it all, and you still have an old radiator.
