1 Answer


Does it cool down while driving down the road and only get hotter while sitting still like at a red light or something? If so try this. With it idling and ac off. When it starts to get a little hot open hood and see if fan is running. If fan is not coming on or just not running as it should I would look into replacing it. It should come on at an idle when it starts to get hot. Fan should not make to much noise also. Hope this helps
