Question about 2005 Nissan Xterra
My XTerra engine seems to get extremely hot when stopped in traffic, even if it is for short periods of time (going through an ATM). So hot that I have to turn the AC off because the air is not cold, and actually gets hot. I can't tell otherwise if the engine actually is hot. Once I start driving, the engine cools back down; and oddly enough, if I rev the engine while stopped, it also cools down. Any thoughts? coolant? plugged radiator? thanks so much!
Sounds to me like the thermostat may be stuck. i would check the coolant, fan, and belts.
