This is what a 211,000 mile radiator looks like. What you are seeing built-up on the radiator is grass and dirt. Blocking air from passing through the radiator. A good 30% of the radiator's surface is blocked and will cause the engine to run hotter and not cool properly. An invisible hazard to your vehicle's cooling system as this is in between the radiator and the AC condenser. If you live in an agricultural area, make sure your radiator's front surface is clean to maintain proper engine operating temps.

Running around and sitting idle a lot in my town's ridiculous road-construction-induced traffic on a 98°F afternoon with the AC on at full blast and this is as hot as it got



Two weeks ago, it was as high as 220°F with less stop-and-go traffic on a 90°F afternoon.
