hello everyone. I have a 95 e250 and it overheats while driving fast. The faster i drive the hotter it gets. when i drive 55 the needle goes between M and A on "normal" scale. If i go faster or its really hot out, it goes to L, but if i drive in the city at normal speed 35-45 its fine. I flushed the radiator and i have to say that the fluid was really red and rusty. Any1 out there knows about someting like this??? All help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello jerzey
I had the sama proplem with my van (E 250 4x4) it was overheating when I drove fast but at slow speed everything was ok. The problem is the radiator, if you look into it you can see scaling on top of the tubes, you dont get rid of it by cemical treatment, you have to get you a new radiator as I had to do

radiator is plugged up or lower radiator hose is collapsing - normally there is a spring to keep the hose from collapsing at high speeds but if it rusts out and fails the hose can collapse and basically close off the radiator.
