Those old enough to recall will know that it used to be like that for every car. My dad's brand new Buick overheated when we were stopped on the highway by a bad accident ahead. He thought that he did not have to get out, shut it down, and raise the hood like the other drivers in line.

Thank traffic jams for getting manufacturers to increase radiator performance. Yours is just old.

Sorry your new radiator will be so expensive over there. But, best of luck. Don't spend too much money fooling around with the fan. The increased idle tells us that it is likely not a fan problem but a circulation problem.
