i gotcha now. its that AC condensor aux fan. my 83 is non-turbo no wonder. well, now my Z31 AE has this little fan infront of the condensor. i guess this was on all the turbo models to help with cooling. now my 87 which was NA had one as well. but it was not stock. someone over here installed it and wired it in and at the time i thought it was stock.
actually I think its good to have one of these even on non-turbo cars. my 87 never overheated during the summertime here with the AC always going and the little auxillary fan running.
i am really wondering whats causing your issue?? its very strange.
maybe your auxillary fan motor is dead and just needs replacement. you may be able to still get this part.
you know the only other thing i can think of is perhaps the stock clutch fan just can't keep up the cooling efficiency that it should. my 83 would do that sometimes when sitting in UTAH traffic and its not even hot there in the summer time. it never overheated, but it would definately run hot when idling. cooling system was in good condition too.
