I have a 1997 Mercedes c230 - replaced water pump last year, but temp light has been coming on lately, when I'm sitting in traffic. What else would I check to maintain temperature?
Check to see if the cooling fans are running, maybe your thermostat is faulty? Maybe the guage or the sensor is bad, best to have a mechaninc check it out for you.
Both the cooling fans and the coolant keep the engine from overheating. Check your coolant levels and add some if it's low. That should keep the warning light from coming on.
the fans in those cars work with a weird clutch on the fan and they break sometimes so they dont catch the fan and therefore dont create the cooling, you need a special tool to fix it and its better to bring it somewhere then try on your own
I change the radiator on my it started to over heat. We bled the system but it st have the water boiling, it seems that the water not getting to the radiator.
I don't have an answer, I'm looking for an answer from you
I agree with Toms answer fro 2 years ago and check and replace the thermostat.
