    Take the cap off and see if you can see the water flowing out of the top hose into the rad.
    If you can its a good chance it clear enough.
    If it was me i,d change the sender.
    If you want to pop up one evening you can try the one out of my rd.

    You could try by passing the rad and see what happens
    or check the water pump
