Your radiator fans are not turning on, either a bad switch, low coolant, or a bad fan motor.

While driving the heat works fine In park the heat turns from hot to cold. do no hear the blowing either.

It almost sounds like you have two issues going on. Ok. While you are driving you have heat and then when you stop it gets cold. That sounds like either air in system or a bad thermostat. And second issue is if you are not hearing the blower motor then you need to figure out whether you are getting power to blower motor and resistor. If you are getting power replace blower motor and since you are down there go ahead and replace resistor. If you are not getting power then you need to check for blown fuses and relays.

How to replace thermostat on 200 kia sephia

So long as the meter does not go into the Red/Orange zone, then it is likely just getting hotter because of the hot weather.

You can help avoid any problems by not driving in stop and go traffic and trying to park the car in shady spots when you can. Not driving for more than an hour helps and driving with the Vent on will help too (but it will make it extra hot inside the car, lol).

If it reaches the red zone, then park it and get ready, cause it's time to replace the thermostat and do a general tune up.

2001 grand prix gt freaking out!

Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.
