Re: samurai overheating

I doubt it. In my experience, most overheating problems are caused either by a radiator that's clogged with scale deposits or a pressure leak somewhere. A cooling system needs to keep around 5 lbs. of pressure to work properly. Check it closely for rotted hoses and coolant leaks. If it isn't leaking, it could be losing pressure through a bad head gasket or radiator cap. A radiator shop should be able to pressure-test the system and/or rod out the radiator for you. HTH
