Or can recommend someone in the Atlanta, Georgia who knows what they're doing.
1. Cooling system plugged up and needs flushed out.
2. Blown head gasket or cracked block or head.
3. Cooling fan inadequate.
4. Timing retarded to far.
5. Radiator cooling fins bent over or stopped up.
6. Water pump impeller corroded and worn away.
