I've got a daily driver of a 95 Honda Accord, 4cyl VTEC. I am thinking I need a new radiator as the temp gauge will climb 1/2 way between normal and hot on these hot afternoons with the A/C running in stop-n-go (mostly stop) traffic. After I get it going down the road (or shut off the A/C, it will cool back down to normal. It's been hot 4-5 times like this, for about 4-6 minutes at a time. 4,700 miles on the current oil. It's a mix of 2-1/2 quarts of M1 and Havoline 5W30, with about a quart of makeup oil. I was hoping to run this out to 7500 miles, but should I go ahead and change it? Car has 147,700 miles on it.
