I ran it for about 20 minutes today. I tried to jump start another car
with a dead battery. It over heated and almost reached the red line
heat mark on the gauge. What can be the cause of this? It sat in
storage from 2002 til a few weeks ago.
Stuck thermastat or the electict cooling fan is not kicking in
low on coolent is another thing to check since it was in storage that long could all so need a radiator flush
Thanks. It was low. I added a gallon of filtered water and it didn't get hot after I ran it. I will schedule flush with auto shop.
