The engine is still very hot and no air is going through the radiator because the car is no longer moving. This is common on the smaller aluminum engines ... in fact on some very hot summer days the car may be parked and the Sun gets the engine compartment so hot the fan will come on all by itself

its the middle of winter and the truck has only been driven 10 minutes. too hot?
