Default Re: 19999 SW1 temp gauge behaving oddly after radiator replacement

it's running really hot now; went clear up to the red zone and the Hi-Temp light came on. Fan isn't coming on. Bought a new fan motor and replaced that. But now I can't find that ONE bolt that holds the fan shroud to the radiator. I put it in a magnetic parts tray when I took it out, to prevent losing it!! That bolt was missing when I got the car. Found a replacement in my collection of old nuts 'n' bolts. But didn't think to get a spare before I put it in the car. Now it's gone. Moved the car far enough (downhill in neutral, not cranked) to look all under it. No luck.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
