Trying to diagnose issues with an overheating 1988 Honda Accord, I pulled the rad to flush it. The lower section has damaged fins as such, though the rad does not leak and holds water fine. It's not rusty either (the rusty splotches on the left are from the flush and isn't surface rust on the rad).
Note:Thermostat is brand new and fans work
Could this amount of damage be a significant contributor to overheating issues?
