frown 98 Taurus overheats

I don't much about cars so bear with me. The anti-freeze bottle and thermostat has been replaced. My engine fan spins like it's supposed to. Any help would be appreciated. Also anyone know where I can a free download of that service manual (the one that shows you how to fix the car) by Helm Inc.? Thank in advance.

A problem with the GEN 3 Taurus is the external radiator fins get clogged with fuzz. Unfortunately there is no good way to clean it out easily. I just replaced mine and it is a major PITA big time. GoTo http://v8sho.com/SHO/RadiatorCleaning.htm
