check the radiator cap to make sure it`s in perfect condition and the proper psi rating
I had a problem with overheating when i did a Alum Radiator on my 2003
new cap and zero issues after.

Into the sunset of time the once great beacon of liberty fades
Past the tipping point a nation fundamentally transformed
Towards serfdom America blindly dances.

The great beacon of liberty
Shines once more...

Tracked down my issue. The ground lead for the radiator fan was not tight enough, put a little bit of torque to it. Fan now runs.
