      does it get hot only while stopped? does it over heat while moving? idling?

      Do the fans kick on? How high does it rise?

      I took my rad out and had it sent in to fix the leak got it back installed it thought I would run it for a little bit to make sure it was fixed (and it's not still leaking) didn't put the fan back in yet seems to cool fine without it....of course I keep moving....that sounds above like a thermostat stuck closed...

      and mine needs a new rad only 600 from GM.....plus the 80 I paid to fix this one which still leaks, they said bring it back we will try again I said gee I don't have the rest of my life to take it out and put it back in again..thanks anyway.

      Hi Thump3r,

      I'm sorry to hear you're having these issues with your vehicle. If you would like to private message me the last 8-digits of your vehicle's VIN#, I would be glad to research and check to see if there are any special coverage or recalls related to the problem your experiencing now.

      Look forward to your reply.
