If it does not get hot while you are doing 70mph but it does while your in traffic then u would say your fan. Pop the hood and turn your car on, let it run for a while if it gets hot and your fan never turns on then there is your problem. How long has it been doing it?

My radiator had cracked which was my problem. If fan doesn't work then check that.

Do you use your ac while you drive can you hear your fan kick on? What color was your coolant when you drained it?

When my car is at idle, how long until the fan kicks on?

Depends on if the car is hott or not...if cold it should kick on as soon as the car reaches the thermostat temp or when the ac is turned on.

Honestly, sounds like to me that the fan isnt either working at all or isnt going fast enough to cool the engine down in other words its not kicking into high speed mode. Also, Im not sure if it was said above but check and see if the rat is stopped up in the front restriciting the air flow at idle or stop.

Re: temperature problems

I'd checked the fan today and don't notice any difference with the engine and a/c workin and with the a/c off.And the fan was at the same speed all the time.

Re: temperature problems

ok, you must have a one speed fan then but somet cars have a two speed fan. If you can remove the fan while the car is cool and take a water hose with a sprayer on it and spray the rat out from the back pushing the water forward. It just might be the fins in the rat are stopped up from debris. Have you put a new thermostat in it?
