First check the antifreeze level. Make sure to do this when the engine has not been running for a period of time (failure to do so could cause burn injuries) If the level is low, top it off. After test driving the vehicle check for leaks under the car. If fluid it leaking, let car cool down, top off fluid again the take to a shop. Prolonged operation of vehicle under these conditions could damage the motor.

Why does my 1992 toyota camry run hot and radiator fan runs slowly


I would strongly suggest you replace the fan as its probably worn out and this is why its spinning slowly,thus why your car is getting hot,its fairly common for electric fans to slow down with age.You need to be careful that you dont drive the car till you fix it as you could overheat it and blow a head gasket!!

you have a 1.8 liter turbo engine correct? it is the water pump that is driven by the timing belt. 100% positive this is correct i have replaced countless water pumps for this reason. the reason it overheats while driving is becuase the splines on the water pumps plastic impeller are gone and it is just freewheeling on the pump shaft. at idle the pump spins slow enough to get the impeller to turn. very very very very common. replace water pump timing belt and tensioner.

Sebring Overheating


check your oil and see if it is milky. if it is then its the head gasket that is blown. is it smoking out of the tail pipe? or could be a faulty heater core
