    Made no difference that I can tell. A new radiator sure did though. Once it was installed the car ran so cold, I was wondering what the heck was going on. Turns out the PO put in a 75C degree thermoswitch, so I put a stock 95 in which now gets the engine to operating temps as long as its not moving. Driving, its still too cold so I suspect that a low temp tstat was also installed, which I'll now have to replace with an 80C one. This is what typically happens when the fan's first speed fails. Owners don't notice, so they start installing low temp tstats/switches trying to cure the symptom instead of solving the problem.
