Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant ES V6
Hello all, I just bought a 2003 Galant V6 98,000 miles and noticed a problem. When parked at idle the car begins to overheat gradually. The temp goes up to 3/4 and I shut it off. I noticed when its getting hot and I rev the engine the temp drops back to normal to the point where the fans shut off. The fans seem to be working fine..they turn on when the heat gauge is at 1/2 and shut off when i drop right below that. Test drove it twice in the highway taking it up to 90mph and it did not overheat at all. When driving the temp gauge bounces up and down a little probably having to do with when I'm accelerating. I just bought the car today:( Please help..thank you very much.

Sounds to me either a low refrigerant charge or low air volume over the evap coil (inside). There is a sencer for temps outside maybe it's tripping out on that.
