If so you will need to "clean" the cooling system. I use (no kidding) dish detergent, about 3/4 of a cup. Let it run for a bit, and flush the hell out of it till the water comes out clean. If you have an oil film on the inside of your block and head, the heat transfer will be greatly reduced. Did you have the oil teted for metal residue to see if you damaged your main and rod bearings? It is also possable to examin your rod bearings with the engine in the car. Might be worth a look. You may want to pull the oil pan to clean it and remove and clean you oil cooler to get the gunk out of it.
