this may be a no brainer. If idle is low, then water pump is moving too slowly.
Also, is it a quality water pump. Also, at low idle, fan moves slowly. So up the idle
some and see what happens. I have my car idling at 1400. I slip it into neutral
at stop lights. Also, bottom rad hose is to be bigger than upper hose.
