ok guys, so im still at a loss on this problem. has anyone experienced anything like this. the engine is a 2.0 duratech. the thermostat is new, the waterpump is new. the fans work properly, the fan blades are good. but the car still overheats. down a hill in 5th at 70mph with a light foot, it is fine, but as soon as there is a slight up hill increase, if i add a slight bit more gas to copensate, the tempurature goes up pretty rapidly. the tempurature is fine at idle though, and if i down shift and accelerate the temp goes down conciderably, or all the way back to normal. if anyone has any clue what is going on, please let me know. if yall need a video, i can try and post one too. thanks in advance for your help.
