After doing a couple of unnecessary radiator replacements in my wife's car,  
I decided to actually verify that there actually was a problem.  Indeed,  
there was, the gauge in the instrument cluster would read fine on the highway,  
and high around town.  The IR temp gun confirmed that the engine was at  normal 
temps, and the ecu fan speed trigger was dead nuts on.
Before you change a darn thing, make sure there's a real problem.

The  prime indicaof a partially clogged radiator is that is is fine on 
the  highway, but overheats in town.
