Take it back to the shop for more repair. There are one or two sensors for the water temperature. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates the electric cooling fan. They could be improperly installed or connected.
If the shop replaced the cooling fan, and if it is good, then it may not be activating properly. Some of the fans have a relay on the fan shroud, some have a relay in the Powerbox for the Radiator fan. If the Relay was bad, then that may have caused the whole problem in the first place.

You can get a diagram of the wires and powerbox by registering your car at Autozone.com for FREE. But you usually get 3000 miles or 30 days minimum on a repair. 90 days is more common because most parts will have at least 90 days of Warranty.

Test both the cooling fan relay and the fuse (located under the hood and inside the control module box).

I KEEP ADDING ANTIFREEZE TO MY 1994 300ZX AND IT RUNS GREAT BUT AFTER ABOUT 3 WEEKS STARTS RUNNING HOT AND IS BONE DRY AGAIN I AM NEWLY DIVORVCED AND DONT HAVE A CLUE BUT AFRAID OF GETTING RIPPED OFF


Sounds like your water pump is bad and leaking, causing it to run hot.It is recommended to get a new timing belt when replacing water pump,these prices are without timing belt change.For the dealer's price is 555.00,for repair shop is 428.00,and for you to do it is 72.00,take door number 3.

2000 chrysler seabring stopped running while driving down street and will not start back up. What could be the problem?


With out going into great detail, you basically need 3 things for engine to run. Fuel, compression, and spark. All 3 can be affected by various items. Perhaps more details will help & how mechanically inclined you are.
