Don't use it
Have a shop find out why
You should not run a vehicle more than a few min
after it reaches full temp as you can overheat the
exhaust converter but the coolant temp shouldn't
go up much at an idle without a problem

SOURCE: My 2006 Chevy Equinox runs very hot when I have to

I assume they checked the cooling fans to make sure they were kicking on. I had a similar problem and the lower part of the radiator was clogged with dirt, bugs, etc. Had to remove the radiator and flush it out.
I also assume they checked the coolant level??
Did they use a remote thermometer to make sure the gauges weren't defective?
You might try a different shop. They should not have given up that easy...

Possibly. It depends on what the climate is like where you live. For instance, if you live in an area where the summer climate hits 110 (i.e. Phoenix), then your vehicle will need to be serviced more regularly. Best recommendation, take your vehicle to AutoZone, Checkers, O'Reillys, etc. for a free diagnostic check.

Ford Focus c max 1.8 petrol idle problems


This can be caused by a defective Maf sensor and coolant sensor, they will not trigger a code because as long as there is a signal the computer doesn't know the actual engine running condition enough to say the signal from the 2 sensors is wrong, this goes double for MAF sensors, another area is the idle speed control motor.. I want you to read about the problem at the link below.

Sorry to say, if you are using coolant and there are no visible leaks, it could be a head gasket.

Overheating


Did you replace the thermostat as well? That could be your problem. Also make sure your radiator and reservoir are full.

06 Equinox won't run with A/C on. Runs fine with A/C off, but when we turn on the air the engine starts sputtering and dies. Check engine light has not come on. Anyone got a clue to what's wrong?


The ac maybe trying to lock up,if it effects the engine performance at ,lets say a 45 mile a hour run,then the ac compressor maybe trying to lock up,if it does not ,then it is a idle problem with the ac turned on,the computer is not idling up with the ac turned on.

My heater stoped blowing hot air.antifreeze level


If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent,
