Bleed it out to see if that helps. After that I would do a leak down test..

Check that your coolant is full, check that your fan is coming on if its converted to electric fans, if those check out fine take a look at your oil to see what it looks like. If it looks like chocolate milk then its a bad headgasket.


Damn that's a good lookin' pixel car ;)

Hey what radiator did they use on the swap? if its the ka one its gonna over heat alot. Check to see if the fans are wired backwards this can happen easily. is it straight water in the system or is it mixed? also the thermostat could be stuck open causing the coolant to not have enough time to get cool

Check the pressure in the radiator hoses to make sure your thermostat is opening let it heat up then check them. Is there white smoke coming out of the exhaust? Because that normally means blown HGH. Depending on temp outside my KA will sit or 30-45min before it goes over 180 degrees.
