    Also check to make sure all the factory original air dams and deflectors are present and correctly installed around the radiator area. A missing lower are dam could cause the kind of overheating problems you are describing,

    I have sent you an article I wrote for Repairpal that may help explain the test I had mentioned earlier and explain a little more in detail overheating issues.
