The issue with  a few degrees warmer could possibly be like my situation...I
have the dreaded clogged radiator syndrome, winter is good, but summer it
gets hot (over 100) in traffic and city. Soon as I'm on the highway, it
cools back down (almost)to the normal 80-85... I have a new radiator sitting
in the garage, that I have to put in before summer gets here...
