1973 Mach 1 completely stock ivy green with silver stripes.
The problem I am experiencing is totally opposite of what I’m use to. I’ve just replaced the stock radiator because of it leaking. I replaced it with an aluminum radiator. When I’m driving the temperature goes almost to the overheat line. When I stop for a light it goes back to normal operating temperature. As I drive away from the light the temperature climbs back up. I have stock gauges and with the original radiator the temperature stayed consistent. When I say strange I mean usually the temperature would climb when stopped but go down when moving. Any suggestions as to why this is happening, I have the original radiator and one day plan to have it fixed but until that day I’m scared to use my car because of the high operating temperature.
