    88 3rd gen overheating dramas

    My poor lude still over heats on a hot day, in the 10 months I've owned my lude I've had one heating issue after the other x( first the radiator cracked after owning it for 2 weeks, so replaced it with a new alloy one, and used nothing but coolant in it, replaced the thermostat, and recently changed the radiator switch, and figured out that the radiator fan is broken (and unplugged) (don't ask how I missed that &#128580 but the AC fan seems to be rigged to switch on when the car reaches temp.......but it STILL overheats if it's hot or if I sit and idle for too long...... I'm running out of options and money, any others ideas are welcome

    Has the cooling system been bled properly. If you have air in the system, it won't flow properly.
