Over heating? Had radiator replaced fans replaced hoses

Customer Question
Over heating? Had radiator...

Over heating? Had radiator replaced fans replaced hoses replaced over $2000 of work?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you checked for a leak in the cooling system?

No leaks. When exceed 60-70 heats up quite quickly especially on freeway, then when pull over it starts cooling down straight away? Around town it's ok.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Hyundai?

Terracan November 01

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, mechanic. But I am ready to take out the 2 thermatic fans in front of the radiator and take for a drive down the freeway to see what happens, it's like they are preventing airflow (yes they come on when hot) from the first day it's been the same thing? Even after all the work?

Hello, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you.

This sounds to me like it may be an output issue from the water pump. Has your mechanic inspected and verified proper water pump/thermostat operation?
