Which engine? Does it overheat while cruising, sitting at traffic lights, or both? Does the heater work when it is running hot?

Re: overheating Sign In

If the thermostat was stuck closed, the engine would overheat even while cruising.

You stated the fans were working. Did you check to see if they were working when the engine was overheating?

Just thoughts as it can run cooler at speed it seems. Are shrouds intact and any chance fan spins the wrong way?
