Recently replaced the passenger side electric cooling fan motor as it
had burned out due to becoming jammed up with snow/ice during a storm
but now the dam car is still overheating. Well the gauge says it's
getting too hot, the needle is going al the way to the left to the
point to where it almost touches the red, the car has not actually
overheated as of yet, I have not allowed it to do that yet.
It does get real hot though, so hot in fact that it's hard to start
some times when the needle is that far over. Any suggestions now why?
The coolant is full, the oil is full both are fresh and the coolant is
a 50/50 mix of anti-freeze/water god for about 24 below zero which I
need here in the northeast.
Could it be the thermostat causing me this trouble, to be honest I
can't remember that ever being changed on this car since I've owned it
and I bought it new :) so that would be one hell of a life out of a
thermostat, over 100k miles so far.
Any other suggestions on why it may be overheating? BTW the drivers
side electric fan is working.
Thanks in advance.
