1999 Saturn SL Getting Hot When Stopped

I have a 1999 Saturn SL and when I am driving the temp is fine, but if I come to a stop the car gets hot. I may only be stopped to go through a drive-thru and it will get hot during that time. Also when I am driving the temp gauge is further over to the left then it normally has been. It is either too hot, or too not. Please help with what I should do. Thank you

Check your electric cooling fan is cutting in when stationary. Air flowing through your radiator whilst driving keeps your engine cool. There is no airflow when stationary, so cooling fan is used to compensate, sounds like yours isnt working.

Air conditioner works fine while driving. When stopped for a light, temperature gage goes up and fan blows hot air.


Hello: Check the radiator cooling fan. With engine running and A/C on open hood look down on the back-side of the grill, that's where the cooling fan is. It should be running, if not check the fuses, cooling fan relays/module if they are ok then you may have a cooling fan motor failure. You can use jumper cables to hot wire the fan motor to see if it runs.
