Alright guys I need some advice, I have a '74tii if I'm cruising the temp guage stays real low, if I get into heavy stop and go traffic it climbs quite high, it hasn't over heated as of yet. I keep shutting the car off to avoid an over heat. I'm think new coolant and thermostat....any second opinions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Had those symptoms years ago. Since I knew the radiator was original, re-cored the radiator, changed the thermostat for good measure, and it was all very good then. Changing only the coolant isn't going to do it.

Curt's radiator cost me about $405 shipped and there's a $50 core charge and shipping (both ways) in that figure. It sounds expensive but it was worth EVERY penny. Take a look at where my water temp gauge sits now... even when I'm stopped it climbs up to whatever thermo switch I run (cold in summer hot in winter) and the electric fan turns on. Get his radiator or get yours re-cored with a tripple core and you'll NEVER overheat again.

Don't run the larger fan as it's loud and robs power - you don't really need it.
