(1999 Chevrolet S10)

I will try to make this short. v6 4x4.
Can not figure out why this s10 is overheating. radiator is clear, cap seems fine, waterpump under 6 months old, fluid cycles, fan turns when engine is running, new thermostat, bypassed the heater core (lines are clear). I am not losing fluid that I can tell. Removed the thermostat and it still overheats, just takes longer. Any ideas? I am losing my mind.

Thanks for the reply. I was under the impression(or just ignorant to the fact) that since water flowed freely from each port when I put the hose to them, that it was fine. Found out today to check by running my hand over it warm. I found some very hot spots and a couple of only warm spots. I will shopping for a radiator and hopefully that will fix the problem.

Sounds like it should fix you up.
