When you're cruising does it hold a decent temp up to a certain speed then suddenly get pretty hot?
My ED was behaving as if there was a "HOT" switch connected to the tacho at 2600rpm - as soon as the engine reached 2600rpm or above the temp just shot up - with revs back below 2600 it would settle down again real quick. Also when idling if the outside temp was above about 36 degrees it would progressively get hotter and hotter (below 36 degrees it was ok - fan would be screaming tho). I flushed the radiator, changed the thermostat, replaced the fan clutch - nothing had any effect - so in desperation I bought a brand new radiator and fitted it - BINGO - problem solved.
