Engine is 3.7, code K. Installed new water pump, thermostat, back-flushed engine, heater core, and radiator. Thermostat opens, after warm-up temperature climbs to normal and then gradually overheats. Moisture droplets hanging from top of exhaust outlet. Compression tests show psi : #1 (160), #2 (174), #3 (177), #4 (180), #5 (170), #6 (178).
