After my 2002 grand am has been drive for a while. When stopped the tempeture gage rises over 200. What cud be wrong with the car?
will try to help. have you made a visual inspection,while car has been driven and stopped,w/engine running, is engine fan running? it cools the motor at stop lights and at idle speed after car has been driven and needs additional help cooling the motor. the thermostat in engine controls the engine temerature, if it [temp. guage moves from 200 and below] the thermostats working. check main fuse box under the hood for blown cooling fan fuse,or a bad cooling fan relay. hope this helps, and as always, thank you for choosing fixya.com.........if you need further assistance, please repost your question, and we'll be happy to assist you!!
