A good idicator of a blocked radiator is if when the car is at temp the top RAd hose is hot and the bottom one isnt as hot.

Put a highflow thermostat in yesterday and a new radiator cap, put dash in dignostic mode thing then went for a drive, was heating up to 93 (little over half way on my gauge) then instantly cooling down to 84ish (quater on gauge) but not sure why its heating up that much in 12 degree mornings after 5 min of driving, cheers hope it helped
