Troubleshooting Cooling Problems



Cooling problems can be traced to three areas:

1) Themo switch mounted in radiator is bad and not turning on the electric fan.

2) Thermostat is ready for replacement.

3) Radiator is partially plugged and wants flushed or replaced. Submitted by Holigans Likeus

In addition, on 80-84 models if the fan isnt coming on check the ground wire that runs from the top of the radiator to the body. These are broken or corroded rather often.
