what causes 1997 ford mustang overheating when air is on

Asked by Jul 05, 2014 at 05:32 PM about the 1997 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I run the a/c for a short period of time my car overheats at idling speed or if I drive
highway speed for a long time it will begin to run hot? Would a flush fix this?

A flush may fix it. But check the radiator cooling fans first. Make sure the fans are coming on. Flushing an older model can open up a can of worms. Something is bound to spring a leak. I also would not recommend using a chemical cleaner when flushing. Just plain water. HTH. -Jim
