I wonder if anyone can help me on this one, I own a 1993 Loyale wagon bought in Canada and have had some problems recently as per such :
Noisy lifters coming from cylinder # 4. The problem was recently corrected with the replacement of the oil pump, problem solved.
I however have an issue since the car was starting to overheat, problem I assumed was due to the oil pump going bad, I had my mechanics replace the oil pump and the the water pump ( with new OEM parts ) however the engine is overheating ( way more than it was with the old water pump ), I checked the rad and found that the rad sensor was not plugged so I plugged it in but no change.
The rad is not hot, the fan is not turning and there is no pressure in the top rad hose going to the engine, could this be due to a defective water pump or would it be a problem of another nature?

Bottom line

you need a new radiator

the cooling fins delaminate from the cooling tubes

no flushing - roding or magic in a can, will cure it

We have seen this problem many times in the past.
(but I am but a grasshopper here at times)

Please do not take my word only on this ...

There is a search engine on the title bar

type in "overheating" and judge for your self.

May you solve this mystery quickly as your head gaskets
going south are only an overheat away

NC nice of you to say so

You are welcome good luck

Hope it's a simple as this fix

many links to twin row rads and such
replacement rads are available

you are looking at under 1.25 c-note ($125) plus shipping

If you have the time and ability, I'd try cleaning it first.

I would run this problem by your mechanic...could be as simple as a bad thermostate staying closed..
