Need help with my Continental overheating.
hey guys I need help determine why my continental is overheating, it has a recently replaced engine of a 2001 continental with a brand new thermostat that has been tested good when it sits still in traffic for more than about to 2-5 minutes it will be getting to overheat slightly but stay within the normal range. if I put it in neutral and hold the RPM's at about two thousand or so it will cool down within one minute and will stay cool as long as I have my foot on the throttle,I have bled the cooling system very well and I believe I have all the air out however the upper radiator hose is a lot hotter than the lower radiator hose so I'm wondering if the water pump is not circulating well or possibly a clogged radiator anyways I really need help with this is my only vehicle thanks guys. sorry if this seems jumbled or the punctuation is incorrect, I am using voice to text on my phone.
The fans are working correctly also.
