Hi I thought I fixed some previous overheating problems but I only helped them. My car was running fine when it was 95F or so over the weekend but now it's 110F(yes, hell, I know) outside and my cars cooling system isn't keeping up.
My car is a 2004 Grand AM V6. The radiator was recently replaced with a salvaged one
This is the bottom half of the radiator(the top half is difficult to photograph). Is that large row of bent fins possibly the reason it can't keep up? Other than that at the top of the radiator there are a few slightly bent lines. Also, isn't there suppose to be some kind of shield to prevent bugs and such from getting in my radiator? I took this picture outside of my car (the silver bit is the outside body of the car)
Is my radiator trash or is it worth trying to straighten the fins and see if it helps or is it not bad enough to have an effect?
