Took car for drive yesterday the heat was blowing and I went about fifteen mins car warmed up stayed at operating temp for about ten mins then started to overheat I got out and I could stop the fan with my fingers deffanately need new fan clutch. I felt the hosesinlet and outlet from radiator and antifreeze is making it thru its cycle my next question is if I should just replace WP and thermostat as well the chassis has 168 k motor has prob about 70-75 k by now being that the motor was replaced by someone named Leroy in pa and only came with 30 day warrenty should I just dump the money and overhaul the cooling system also has anyone ever herd of the radiator clogging because the radiator and hoses all look to be in like new condition and would hate to pay to replace them if it isn't neccesary. Thanks again to everyone. PS I am correct in the assumption that I should not be able to stop my fan from spinning with my fingers correct?
