Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist you.
it only gets hot on the interstate?
but it doesnt overheat in city driving?
ok...did you replace the radiator for this same problem?
does the fans come on?
lets try something first..
lets try bleeding the system,sense the cooling system has been worked on,you may now have air in the system.
lets bleed it this way
1-remove the radiator/reservoir cap when the engine is cold
2-start the engine and let idle
3-turn the heater on max
4-keep coolant on hand and add it as needed
5-spme coolant may gush out with the air
6-keep doing this until the engine is at operating tempeture and the heater is hot
7-after the coolant settles down and the engine is warm,,install the cap
This may take as long as 20-30 minutes
this may fix your problem.
if not and from the way you explain,,you may have a blown head gasket
