If the KOEO test cycles the low speed fan then it is probably okay. But again, even with my Fluidyne rad, my temp does not really start to go down in stop and go traffic till the high speed fan comes on. It just doesn't have enough air moving across it to exchange the heat. I think you really need to have the igh speed fan on sooner. I really wanted the fan to come on sooner in my 94 for 2 reasons. One just to keep engine temp down, but remember that heat is power. But my 94 was an AODE. ATF really doesn't like heat. I saw a graph once from an ATF manufacturer showing the inverse relationship of heat vs ATF longevity. ATF breaks down much faster once you get above about 180. It gets even worse the higher the temp goes. I figures since the ATF runs thgough a cooler in the rad, the lower the temps there, the more heat it could exchange. I also added an external cooler.
Have you ever had your rad cleaned out? When I removed the stock one in my 95, it had a lot of sediment in it that you really couldn't see. It looked good from the top, but when I ran water through it to flush it just out of curiosity, it was really full of brown gunk. At the age of our cars, a good professional flush, (or even replacement with a new stock unit if you don't want to put money into an eight year old rad) is not a bad idea.
