deanhinsley1963 is on a distinguished road

I would probably change the thermostat refill with straight water and see how it does. Check everything shroud,fan and blades,bottom hose for sucking together. If the thermastat fixes the problem then put your anti-freze in and your good to go. If it does'nt then I would be suspecting the water pump. I have heard of a few going out. I dont think its your fan. They will heat up idling and around town,not going down the road,unless pulling heavy with a/c on.
