The first question is, is the electric fan running? It should at higher
temps, and whenever the A/C is on.

I think I need to attack the fan clutch, but am not absolutely certain.
May I ask how one can tell for sure? My fan is working, but am
suspect of the speed. Is an educated guess grounds for replacement? I
know I am not getting all three speeds on the electric fan, but my
temps are getting past 100 already in stop and go traffic on warmer
days. The radiator is only 2 years old, as is the Tstat. Tis the
season to study the cooling system....
